Retort was built as the steam yacht Enaj IV in 1923 by George Lawley ~ Sons, Neponset, Mass. Later named Kooyung II, she was purchased by the Navy as Evelyn R I1, 21 August 1940, from Mr. W. R. Reid, Houston, Tex., partially converted at Galveston, and commissioned as PC-458 on 16 January 1941, Ens. M. V. Carson, Jr., USNR, in command.
