Two Bullfinch-class destroyers served with the British Royal Navy; Bullfinch and Dove were both built by Earle's Shipbuilding company in Hull in 1898. They were 345-ton class C-class destroyers, sporting three funnels, and capable of a speed of 30 knots (56 km/h), thanks to their Thornycroft boilers. They were 210 feet long, generated 5,800 HP and carried a full complement of 63 officers and men. They were distinguished from other similar C-class ships by their flat-sided centre funnels and conspicuous steam pipes. They were armed with the standard twelve-pounder and two torpedo tubes, and served through the Great War, being broken up after the end of hostilities.
