‘Nirvana of Arklow’

I much prefer to use my own photos when posting here, but sometimes there are photos that are too good not to make available to the general public.

This photo is of a rather special Albert Strange yawl, ‘Nirvana of Arklow’. I copied* it from Your Boat Pix. (See link below) Photos at that site have been placed there for owners of yachts who may perchance discover them. Have a look at Boat Pix, because you may come across a photo of your yacht there.

‘Nirvana’ is a real stunner. Everything about her harmoniously gels together. It’s a case of function and aesthetics blending to form a near perfect creation.

This splendid 31foot 9 ton yawl was built for Billy Mooney in 1925 by Jack Tyrrell of Arklow. She was originally named, ‘Nirvana’.

Other photos of ‘Nirvana’ can be found at the Albert Strange Association’s website where they are freely available for all to see – it just needs a little probing to winkle them out.

*As far as I can tell, there are no copyright restrictions at the Your Boat Pix website.
