Understood to have been built in 1906, she is also understood to have been converted recently to motor operation but with her steam engines remaining in-situ. Based in Cairo, offering regular dinner cruises. In early 2017 these were advertised as being twice daily. Recently rebranded as Andrea Masterly & Nile Peking Cruising Restaurant. She was heavily rebuilt, with large ports replacing her cabin windows and with two Chinese-style buildings featuring red tiled roofs on her upper deck. In latter years she cruised under the name of Time Machine and Mahasen but it is thought that she was originally one of the Thomas Cook steamers fleet.
