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.
