An Stearnan is a replica of a traditional Orkney Yawl, which would have been used for fishing offshore under sail or oars. She was built in Larch on oak by Mr P K Wakefield. The workmanship he crafted into her build is widely admired. The class is still raced today. She was recently displayed and well received at The Old Gaffers festival at Holyhead on Anglesey. A recent survey is available to serious enquirers.
