'Dorsella' is an attractive Ex Admirakty Pinnace that was built in 1928 by J.S. White in Cowes. The hull is Oak, double cross hatched Teak. The decking is in teak and GRP, with a steel and teak superstructure. Originally steam powered and working in the Solent, she was converted to diesel and modernised from the 1980's to 2011.
