About this title


Waitangi, Rainbow and Ariki, Little Jim and Rona ... these are the famous names of famous, elegant and magnificent classic boats that excite the attention of anyone who comes across them out on New Zealand's coastal waters. Now Ivor Wilkins' stunning coffee-table book Classic: The revival of Classic Boating in New Zealand celebrates their power and grace and the people who have restored them to their glory. These boats are a direct link to this country's remarkable maritime history. No sooner had the first European settlers arrived in Auckland, for example, than they held a regatta to celebrate. The first pure racing/pleasure yachts were built from the 1880s onwards by the famous houses of Logan and Bailey, and more than 100 years later many of these masterpieces are still going strong - largely due to our very durable, beautiful kauri timber. Their remarkable life stories of success, neglect and restoration tell the story of New Zealand's history. Renowned yachting writer and photographer Ivor Wilkins shares the stories of these beautiful boats from the Victorian and Edwardian periods and of the people behind them, showcasing the leading lights of the recent classic yacht revival movement. Each boat is a tribute not only to the original builders but also to their current owners and restorers, who have gone to what might seem incomprehensible lengths to bring them back to their former glory and return them to home waters. Lavishly illustrated with contemporary and historic photographs, this is a landmark book that anyone with an interest in yachts, launches and sailing dinghies, our heritage, our coast and our history craftsmanship and design will cherish.
