Garden's career as both a yacht designer and builder spanned well over six decades and untold hundreds of boats. Garden's writing style is just as far-ranging and eclectic as his boats, whimsical and informative, light-hearted yet solidly grounded, serious, thought-provoking and thoroughly engaging. The original edition of Yacht Designs was published in 1977 and, after several printings, had gone completely out of print. Bill Garden revised and expanded the essays from the original edition and added over 30 more boats, many never before published, and even a few dream ships that were never built. Each essay is as different as the boat it describes, sometimes explaining the building process or a particular aspect of it in detail, or the events that led to a design, or the individuals involved, or the evolution of a yacht type, or Bill's own unique outlook on life and the boats he loved. Discover why Bill Garden has been an inspiration to succeeding generations of yacht designers!
William Garden was a self-confessed recluse who lived and worked in British Columbia. His island workshop, Toad's Landing, was a haven of boat design and boatbuilding. Bill Garden's work is an inspiration to succeeding generations of yacht designers.
