About this title


A guided tour of the world's best sailboats with an entertaining expert at your side.

In the classic format of the first volume, with magnificent color photographs and black-and-white illustrations, the even more spectacular Volume 2 celebrates the giant leaps in technology and design of the last decade and a half. Ferenc Máté analyzes designs and construction while revealing the secrets of the world's top twenty builders, making this book invaluable for any boat buyer and would-be sailor. It includes dozens of new boats by the perennial best builders―Hinckley, Alden, Baltic, and Swan―plus all the boats of ten new builders, the likes of J-Boats, Oyster, Valiant, and Sabre, who have, over the years, consistently shown the highest quality and most creative innovation. Máté visited each of the boatyards―in Europe, Canada, and the United States―to document his scrupulous firsthand survey. His color photographs are benchmarks in nautical publishing, and his writing is thoughtful, engagingly direct, and always entertaining. Praise for Volume I: "Possibly the most beautiful sailing book ever published."―Yachting magazine 404 color photographs; 212 illustrations
