About this title


Book by Walker, Matthew

Book Description:

A yacht is not necessarily a grandiose floating palace that no one except the very wealthy can afford. Many people who have fallen in love with the sea and the experience of boating have found that tight finances or lack of boating experience need not be a crippling obstacle. Whether one's interest is in sailing or power-boats, modern or traditional craft, there is room for the enjoyment of all types of vessels -- whether simple or expensive -- as explained and depicted in this generously illustrated volume:

Innovative and creative marine designs are seen in photographs of:
-- The various stages of yacht construction
-- A gallery of sailing yachts, powerboats, and unusual types such as the Chinese junk
-- Resourceful ideas for galleys and eating areas
-- Both sumptuous and spartan living and sleeping quarters
-- Interior detailing that is functional and unique

Here is a celebration of yachting, that passion of people who adapt to and are embraced by the sea and find endless delight in planning, maintaining, and piloting the floating palace of their dreams.
