Result (schooner)

Result is a three-masted cargo schooner built in Carrickfergus in 1893. She was a working ship until 1967, and served for a short time in the Royal Navy as a Q-ship during World War I. She currently rests on land at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, and in 1996 was added to the National Register of Historic Vessels.

The ship was ordered from the Paul Rodgers & Co. yard in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland, by the shipping company Thomas Ashburner & Co., based in Barrow. The ship was laid down in early 1892, but financial problems forced Rodgers to sell his yard to Robert Kent & Co. of Ayr, before she was complete, and Kent & Co. finally launched the ship in January 1893. The design was a collaboration between Paul Rodgers, Richard Ashburner and Capt. Robert Wright, and in consequence she was named the "Result".
