About the Shamrock Yacht
Built in 1898, the Shamrock was an Irish vessel designed to compete in the 1899 America’s cup against the United States defender Columbia. While this attempt was unsuccessful, the Shamrock went on to become the blueprint model of the future Shamrock II and Shamrock III.
Originally skippered by Captain Archibald Hogarth, the yacht featured a composite fit, boasting a manganese-bronze bottom and aluminium topside clinker built over a steel frame and pine decking.
