Editorial Review:

Product Description:
A charmingly illustrated selection of thirty-six iconic boats and the remarkable stories surrounding them.
 
Whether it be on a humble fishing boat, a canvas kayak, or a racing yacht, the allure of navigating across a brilliant blue sea is a pleasure that many dream of experiencing. Notable Boats presents thirty-six small crafts and the inspirational journeys that made them memorable, celebrating the beauty and craftsmanship of each vessel. From an eleven-foot micro-cruiser that was built on an apartment balcony then set sail around the world, to the seven-day voyage that would change John Lennon’s life, this book is an absorbing read that will engage the reader in the romance of maritime adventures.
 
Featuring beautiful color illustrations, attractively styled statistics, and gripping text, Notable Boats is a delightful read for anyone who appreciates the art of sailing, showing a range of everyday crafts such as the canoe and the fishing trawler, boats of historic interest, fictional ships, and more. Each boat is illustrated in detail, including the aerial view of its deck, a map of its course, and a written description of the boat and what it is famous for. The stories cover the globe, with compelling tales from all the world’s waterways, from the Nile to the poles and from the Spanish Main across the seven seas.
 
Notable Boats offers an intimate window into a world of sailing and pays homage to some of the world’s most unforgettable boats, adventurous sailors, and amazing voyages.
