   Scillonian (2) was built by J.I.Thornycroft at Woolston, Southampton, and entered service in March 1956. She replaced the original Scillonian (1) of 1926. Scillonian (2) was 208ft long, 921 gross tons and was powered by two Rustion diesels which gave a speed of 15.5 knots. She carried 500 passengers and 14 crew.

   Scillonian (2) operated between the Isles of Scilly and Penzance, although she sometimes diverted to Falmouth or St Ives in bad weather. Scillonian (2) was replaced by Scillonian III in 1977, and was sold to P&A Campbell as the joining the Balmoral. In her first season Devonia deputised for Balmoral on the Bristol Channel, and ran on the Thames, still with her white hull. Campbells hoped to use her freight capacity to serve Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel, work eventually taken over by the Oldenburg, but this did not transpire. Over the winter of 1977/1978, Devonia was chartered for oil rig ferry work at Loch Kishorn, before returning to the Bristol Channel in April, by then in full Campbell colours. She was laid up in Bristol late 1978. P&A Campbell ceased operations in 1980.
