Inspired by history, created by craftsmen, forged in precious metal, Blacoe Jewellers are proud to present their range of exceptional Galway Hooker from the home of the Hooker in Galway, Ireland.
The Galway Hooker was an 18th century development; a boat constructed with the specific needs of the fishermen of the West in mind which quickly became their very own.
The Galway Hooker is a unique variation, developed for the often unwieldy seas off the West Coast.
It is most easily identified by the sail formation, which is extremely distinctive and quite beautiful. It consisted of a single mast with a main sail and two foresails.
A derivation of the Hooker was the Pucan, which had one main sail and one foresail, and is also unique to Galway.
