DOROTHEA was built in 1932 along the lines of a naval pinnace and was commissioned by William Robinson, an engineer. She is an unusual example of a 1930s gentleman's launch with a funnel and counter stern, and has been restored and refurbished to her original condition. The vessel retains her first engine and gearbox.
