From the Publisher The Great Classic Yacht Revival traces the traditional yacht movement, from its peak in the 1930s to its eclipse in the 1960s and how, since then, it has risen from the backwaters of boating to become the most stylish worldwide phenomenon. Traditional yachts feature unparalleled levels of craftsmanship and elegant design and permit a much more intimate connection to navigation and sailing than their modern descendants. Landmark restorations and new-builds are examined in detail—from the most authentic to the most contemporary "modern classics"—together with in-depth discussions on the central issues facing the vessels'' restorers and their owners. The book features a host of international regattas and glamorous yachting circuits that bear witness to a prolific number of admiring eyes on polished brass, varnished teak, and hand-stitched canvas.
