Notes

Before the turn of twentieth century, there were 3 types of boats designated as ‘Belfast Lough One Design’. Class I, (9 built), Class II (SEABIRD 9 built) Class III (JEWELL), the smallest with 10 built.
This version (CLASS II) is the earliest of the 3.
It’s unknown if any of the original boats still survive.
