Editorial Review:

Product Description:

An encyclopedic compendium of every element of a yacht, this book contains a wealth of information for the aficionado as well as the newcomer, taking apart the sailboat to explore every part of it in depth. Gloriously illustrated with beautiful photography and explanatory diagrams, each page is packed with fascinating and satisfying detail.

Looking first at the history of yachting and boatbuilding techniques, the book arms the reader with the knowledge to understand the lineage and characteristics of the sailboat parts that are focused on in the later more detailed chapters. All the main features of contemporary vessels--ranging from keels and masts to portholes and binnacles--are then analyzed, with explanations of how they came to be the size, shape and material that they are, what they have in common, why they differ, all spiced with relevant historical anecdotes.

This is a wide-ranging, trailblazing and stunning treasure trove of fascinating information, which will delight and absorb anyone who has ever sailed on or gazed in wonder at a yacht.
