Product Description:

A beautiful and handy guide to sailing vessels by Benjamin Mendlowitz, America's preeminent photographer of wooden boats.

Over the years, Benjamin Mendlowitz has compiled a photo archive of thousands of wooden boats from which he has created this photographic guide to all kinds of sailing vessels. Virtually all the major designers are represented, from John Alden's lovely gaff-rigged schooner Voyager and the innovative Sparkman and Stephens yawl Dorade, to the classic Herreshoff New York 30 sloop Amorita, the lovely Fife ketch Belle Aventure, and many more. Maynard Bray provides notes and specifications for 145 boats that are divided by types and shown in full color. Sailors will want this book for pleasure as well as for identifications. Wooden-boat lovers will find it a feast for the eye and the imagination. 145 full-color photographs
