Description

What a wonderful gift for boat lovers everywhere: the most beautiful, most international guide to celebrated sailboats round the world. Come sailing with Chapman, on the pages of an expansive, attractively illustrated reference to large, and frequently famous, sailboats from around the globe. Enthusiasts will find completely up-to-date information on these extremely popular boats, more than 450 color photos, and descriptions of different types of sailing ships and rigging. Each craft listed features a full-color picture, details, and statistics, accompanied by facts and figures on its home port, the year it was built, the names of the owner and crew, plus rigging, tonnage, mast, sails, and use. The history of each vessel starts from the moment it was launched and continues right to the present; reproductions and museum ships also appear. A useful glossary includes important nautical terms.show more
