Dublin dockyards 1852

Hunt’s Universal Yacht List for 1852 has a small ad from Henry Teall.

Henry Teall,
Ship Builder,
Brunswick Dock Yard and Patent Slip, Dublin

Established 1841

H Teall, begs respectfully to inform the Owners of Yachts, that his Establishment maintains superior facilities for the Building and Repairing of Yachts to any other establishment in Dublin, having always an extensive supply of every requisite in the trade, and employing the best workmen in the port.

It lists these yachts built by Teall:

Brilliant, 8 tons
Rover, 18 tons
Marina, 20 tons
Fairy Queen, 12 tons
Belle, 60 tons
Circe, 20 tons
Trio, 53 tons.

A note on Marina says

This Yacht is of novel construction, the bow being extended sufficiently to set the jib without the bowsprit, giving a much finer entrance as well as allowing more beam.

Our yachting correspondent tells us that Yachts without bowsprits are now becoming common.

Foam, 17 tons
Eagle, 15 tons
