Wooden Ships Comments
Alfred Mylne Islands Class yawl, built by John Hilditch of Carrickfergus in 1913.
She was designed as a one design boat for racing on Belfast Lough and was the 6th of the class to be built by Hilditch. She had an illustrious racing career which has been very well documented and recorded.
She had a complete professional rebuild in present ownership, completed in 2015. The hull was rebuilt as necessary however much of the planking was saved. The interior, deck, systems and complete rig were replaced to the original design.
Since her re-launch she has been raced and cruised by the family owners, stored inside each winter and professionally maintained. She is in superb condition inside and out, fully equipped and ready to go sailing.
