Florence was an early vessel owned by North Shore Ferries and later sold to North Shore Steam Ferries.

In 1873 she operated under charter to the Milsons Point Ferry Company on the Circular Quay to Neutral Bay run. The fare was sixpence each way and took 2 hours for the full round trip.

Florence was abandoned in 1900.
