They looked at the Vilani Jump-ship, figured out how the Jump-tech worked, and used their own technology and methods to construct a new vessel (and actually improved upon the crude Vilani Jump Drive). The ship remained a Vilani family/clan heirloom (and its superior Jump capability was kept as a closely guarded secret).

At some point it obviously changed hands in terms of ownership one or more times before first being encountered in Imperial Space in 1103.
