Ocean Dawn was built by Richard Ironworks of Lowestoft in 1956. She was built as one of a quartet for Bloomfields of Great Yarmouth. The other three were Ocean Surf YH107, Ocean Crest YH207, and Ocean Trust YH377.
While in ownership to Bloomfields in April 1961 OCEAN DAWN was involved in the rescue of six crew from the FRANDOR LT369, after she had caught on fire.
 
She fished out of Yarmouth until 1963, when she was sold to Small & Co. of Lowestoft and registered as LT466.She later became the property of The East Anglian Ice & Cold Storage Company, where she began trawling full time.
 
In 1969 she was sold to John Muir of Cellardyke, and moved to Kirkcaldy and registered KY371. Unfortunately, whilst berthed in Aberdeen Harbour in 1979 she caught her stern under some pilings as the tide rose she took on water and sank. (The crew were in the pub at the time). She was dried out and there was no major damage to her
 
In 1984 OCEAN DAWN finally gave up fishing, when she was sold to the Colne Shipping Co Ltd to be converted into a 100 class stand by vessel. She worked in the southern North Sea, doing 21-day trips with a crew of 6 or 7 and accommodation for 10 (this accommodation is still in place). She was re-named REWGA, and can be seen in the book “Fishing with Diversity”.
 
After being sold in 1987 to a Swedish Co. She reverted back to her old name. OCEAN DAWN had several owners in Sweden until 1997, when a private owner bought her and brought her back to the South coast.
 
The current owners of OCEAN DAWN have converted her to sleep five in three cabins in the old fish hold, which also has a saloon area, shower and toilet. The crew quarters are still the same as when she was fishing, with ten bunks in the aft section below decks. There is a full galley and mess area in the deck house.
