The French ocean going trawler Marcella was built by Ateliers et Chantiers de St.Nazaire and was launched in 1932. She was delivered to the French company Societe de Pecheries in 1933, and was sent fishing in the waters around Grenland. After the French capitulation in June 1940, she continued her service under Vichy France flag. When Germany occupied Vichy in November 1942, the Kriegsmarine confiscated the trawler. She was refitted as an an uboat hunter and assigned to 22. Ubootjagd Flotille in Marseilles under command of Leutnant zur see Otto Pollmann. While patrolling the waters outside Italy, she came on contact with four British torpedo boats outside Deiva Marina at night 28. October 1944.
