Builder: Chatham Royal Dockyard[1]
Launched: 31 Jan, 1877[2]
Completed: 1878[3]
Sold: 1897[4]
H.M.S. Euryalus was one of three Bacchante Class corvettes completed for the Royal Navy.

Service

In April 1886, it was reported that the ship was to be brought out of the Fourth Division of the Medway Steam Reserve, where it had been for almost a year, and overhauled for a third term of foreign service.[5] However, this idea was still being reported in a prospective fashion as late as October of that same year.[6]

Apparently, this never occurred. In May 1894 it was reported that she and the corvette Bacchante were to removed from the effective list.[7] In November 1894, she was taken up for conversion to become a gun-cotton depot ship.[8] Whether she served in this capacity is not clear. She was declared unfit for further service in April 1895[9] and then in September, considered for conversion for harbour service as a stationary training ship at Cork.[10]

In mid-May 1897, it was reported that she had been sold along with the cruisers Bacchante and Canada to the Shipbreaking Company, Limited of London.[11]
