The length of the ship was more than 114 feet, beam towering to a height of more than 31 feet and a hold depth was more than 14 feet.

HMS Fly initially served on the North America and West Indies station from January 1832 under the command of Peter M’Quhae until returning to Plymouth in September 1833. During 1840, the HMS Fly was cruising around many of Australia’s locations until returning to Great Britain in June of 1846.
