Not to be confused with at least 4 other vessels of the same name.
An 1884 built Iron Screw Steamer, as seen in the Passengers in History website, which sailed to various ports at the end of the 19th Century.

And a much smaller vessel a barque of 557 tons, which had sailed from Glasgow, 10th November 1853 to Port Phillip, with William Nelson, its master. from the Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer of Thursday 16 March 1854.

Or the HMS Bucephalus a 32-gun frigate of a half a century earlier. Or the earlier HMS Bucephalus a 64 gun Alexander-class fourth-rate ship of the line commissioned in September, 1720.
