The most unique destinations of cruising yachtsmen are explored in this handsomely illustrated book—now reissued.

Scenery and culture change around the world from port to port. But one thing remains the same, for sojourner, spectator, and sailor alike: there is magic down by the waterfront—portents and possibilities and passages to anywhere. Harbors are portals to the whole world, the doorways from civilized domestic ordered life out into physical dangers, beauties, and the unknown.

Harbors of Enchantment explores the world's best or favorite destinations of seafaring folk. The locales are diverse, including grand harbors such as Sydney and Hong Kong and lesser-known hideaways on the coasts of Turkey and Thailand.

The harbors are depicted by exquisite photographs and informative text. Photos include aerials, overviews, and detail shots. Cynthia Kaul's text focuses on whatever makes a particular harbor special, whether it be history, mythology, culture, or topography. Each harbor has been chosen because it is unique in some way.

The authors have surveyed many cruising yachtsmen as well as such famous personalities as Malcolm Forbes, William F. Buckley, Hal Roth, Carleton Mitchell, Jimmy Buffett, and Prince Rainier. This is a book for all who are drawn to the water.
