Through 224 pages, 334 photos and illustrations and 75 yacht design profiles, American Classic, The Yachts and Ships of Jack Hargrave introduces the reader to a true American success story and in so doing traces history’s richest chapter in the development of pleasure boating and commercial shipping. Hargrave’s genius flowed from his ability to blend practical knowledge gained as yacht captain, merchant seaman and boat builder with an academician’s dedication to the mathematics of naval architecture, and to polish the results with an artist’s eye.
