Editorial Review:

Product Description:

Knud Aage Nielsen’s boats remain highly prized. This big, handsome volume includes many plans and photographs to study and enjoy.

Although the name of Knud Aage Nielsen is arguably not as well known as his colleagues in the pantheon of great yacht designers of the twentieth century--Olin Stephens, Nathanael Greene Herreshoff, John G. Alden, and others--it should be. Nielsen devoted his life to boat design and construction, beginning with his youth in his native Denmark. Nielsen's ability to build anything he designed gave him a unique relationship with accomplished builders.

From the beginning his plans were know for remarkable attention to form and detail.  "Good enough is not a sufficient goal..." -- Aage Nielsen
