On her launch, the Aberdeen Journal reported that the Brilliant's second class passengers had a deck-house between the fore and main masts, while her first class passengers enjoyed a polished teak saloon and cabin.

In 1894, the Sydney Dailey Telegraph reported, "Well known Aberdeen clipper ship Brilliant has added another to her many fast passages by making the run to London in 79 days. She was the last ship despatched from Sydney for the January wool sales, taking 7001 bales and was amongst the first arrivals at home. For 3rd year in succession she has made the run home in less than 83 days, proving that she is one of the fastest ships in the trade."

Here, artist Efren Erese has captured the elegance of this historic ship.
