Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Tuiga, Mariquita, Cambria, Shamrock, Eleonora, Zaca, Moonbeam, Lulworth, Sunshine, Partridge, Altair, Nan, Marilee, and Bona Fide: these are the sailing yachts of legend. Restored in the last ten years, the original splendor of these superb boats is now profiled on the pages of Classic Yachts. A testimony to maritime history, this book tells each sailing vessel's story through arresting photographs, an informative text, and architectural diagrams.

Author Francois Chevalier recounts the entertaining history of these boats, covering everything from their construction and restoration to anecdotal tales of regattas won and lost. Gary Jobson, America's preeminent sailing ambassador, provides a foreword and lively captions, which underscore the contemporary significance of these traditional yachts.

Double-page spreads and a unique, oversized oblong format feature Martin-Raget's brilliant photographs. Readers feel as if they are on deck with the crew. While outdoor photography captures the excitement on board, images of the boats' interiors offer a peak at their luxurious accommodations. In addition, illustrator Francois Chevalier's detailed diagrams of each vessel provide the reader an overview of each boat's architecture.
