About this title


This handbook takes the novice step-by-step through all the stages of designing both power and sailing boats so that, with no previous experience, they can produce a worthwhile design. It includes working drawings and typical line plans from a wide range of vessels. The calculations require only basic mathematical skills and the text is written in a simple and straightforward style.

From the Back Cover:

There is nothing magical or particularly brilliant about designing a boat, and you don't need to be an Einstein or a Leonardo da Vinci to sketch out the sort of craft that appeals to you. Indeed this first sketch that many potential owners will have made at some time is the most important part of a design. It needs only the bare bones to be fleshed out and some checks and balances to complete the design process. This may take a little time but it certainly isn't difficult. And the same processes apply for a dinghy as well as a cruising yacht.

John Teale takes the reader step-by-step through the stages of designing both power and sailing boats, while also explaining the reasons behind the process. Sketches and reproductions of working drawings are used throughout to help understanding so that by the end of the book even a first time designer's effort can be translated by a builder into a sensible and workmanlike reality.

Since it was first published, How to Design a Boat has proved itself a bestseller. The second edition simplifies several calculations and introduces new designs.
