The future Chalena was designed by Cox & Stevens, New York

She was built in 1929–1930 by Krupp Germaniawerft at Kiel as Reveler for Russell Alger, chairman of the Packard Motor Car Company

In 1931 she was bought by Charles E. F. McCann, son-in-law of the founder of Woolworths stores, Frank Winfield Woolworth for some US$375,000, and fitting-out was finally completed. Reveler was renamed Chalena, drawing on the first names of the owner and his wife, Helena, allocated Callsign MJPT (changed the following year to WGEJ) and home-ported at New York. The yacht was based at the Glen Cove station of the New York Yacht Club.
