Lotus was originally owned by the Joubert family and operated on the Lane Cove River for much of her passenger carrying life.

She was sold to the Balmain New Ferry Company and then later again to Sydney Ferries Ltd. In 1918 she was again sold, this time to Harbour & River Lighterage who ran her as a cargo vessel until 1939.

She was sold to be broken up in 1939.
