Wooden Classic Orkney Yawl
Orkney Yawl An Stearnan is a beautiful replica of a traditional South Orkney Yawl (Yole) and is a two masted three sail version. These vessels would have been used off shore for fishing under sail and oars.
She was built by Mr Peter Wakefield in larch on oak frames with a double ended hull which has beautiful shear. She was built as a labour of love and the workmanship crafted into her build is widely admired. She was displayed and was well received at the Old Gaffers Festival at Holyhead on Anglesey.
Orkney Yawl An Stearnan is a double ended fishing vessel with well raked stern and stern posts, bold sheer and a wide beamed round bilge hull. She is constructed of larch on oak frames.
The ketch rig with sprits and bow sprit sets on unstayed masts and carries three tan sails. The terylene sails each have two lines of slab reefing points, one on the jib.
Orkney Yawls were built as off shore fishing vessels. The class is still raced to this day.
Mr Wakefield completed this superb replica Orkney Yawl, An Stearnan, in 2009. His design drawings are available and a survey that was undertaken by an independent surveyor. This is available to serious enquirers.
