Five were built in the space of just a few months winter ***.***.***, then TRASNAGH’s commissioning owner, the advisor to Sir Thomas Lipton’s SHAMROCK America’s Cup challenges, decided the party was too good to miss. Two of the six survive, one a project, and TRASNAGH, the subject of a meticulous restoration awarded a runner up prize in the Classic Boat Awards 2014. TRASNAGH is ready to go for regattas and cruising – true to the original raison d’etre.

Ian Nicolson on the Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club Island-Class

Looking at the lovely sweep of the sheer -- the line of the deck elevation -- it is clear that these vessels were crafted and manufactured to be beautiful: to inspire love and affection; to teach successive generations about the bliss of going afloat; to experience the friendliness of sailing; to feel the excitement of danger when the gust blasts over the water and to know the solid pleasure of beating the elements and reaching seaport safely. What sport can begin to compare with sailing and racing for people of all ages?”

Owner's Comments on the Restoration

***.***.*** BY PETER NASH, DARTMOUTH, DEVON
"TRASNAGH was bought as a bare body in 2010 and went through a complete bottom-up restoration led by Peter Nash with several specialists. The remanufactured took four years, and in 2014 was selected as the Classic Boat magazine restoration of the year runner up.
"No expense was spared to bring her stern to her former and total beauty. Every step of the way Pete brought the best craftsman onto the project. For example: Ed Burnett was involved when we got to research and cut the sail plan; Lee Rogers was selected to hand make all the rigging; and many suppliers were selected to source all the fresh items, from all-bronze winches, to new spars from Collar. 
"At every step of the project we agreed to “do the right thing”. So, for example: the keel was removed; full inspection; then retailored with all new cast iron bolts; the teak decks were laid on all replaced plywood; in the mast step area we decided to strengthen to port & starboard, replacing the 2 in x 4 in steamed beams with 4 in x 4 in laminated beams; all floors were removed and either restored or replaced. All new units were tailored: water & gasoline basins; direction units; electrics; 4 x 160 Ah Glen batteries; all new (in keeping) inside.
"In summary, nothing was left to chance, everything that could be saved was, and everything else was replaced with authentic materials."

History

On Belfast Lough, the idea of one-design yacht racing in performance cruiser-racers had been well honed over two decades by the time this wonderful class of very efficiently rigged gaff yawls hit the scene in 1911. Typically, proprietors from both sides of the Lough expected a one design class to have run its course in about five seasons, after which they would try something new. But the designers and builders they commissioned had no concept of expendable vessels, despite being squeezed on price by these hard-nosed Belfast industrialists and professionals.
So down the centuries we are left with some wonderful survivors of the Belfast Lough One Design Classes, the Alfred Mylne-crafted Island Class yawls being arguably the best of them; holding their own while the International Rule was beginning to gain momentum. An horrific war that would decimate many of the offspr
