Hobbyists will love this fully illustrated volume on pre-WWII boats
This gorgeous full-color celebration of wooden motor yachts and workboats built prior to World War II is sure to be a hit with mariners and landlubbers alike. Award-winning writer and photographer Ron McClure sought out the loveliest wooden motorboats on both coasts of the United States and Canada, and then chose the 45 most distinctive for inclusion in Classic Wooden Motor Yachts. Lavish photographs take in each boat's graceful lines, while close-up shots of decks, interior appointments, and engines reveal the unique grace notes of brass, wood, and leaded glass that give these boats their charm.
The accompanying text tells the fascinating stories of these beauties. Readers get full details of their specifications, design, and construction, along with their amazing, often bizarre histories, including accounts of decline and restoration. With its focus on boats of moderate size (under 60 feet) and the details of their restoration, this elegant landscape-format paperback with flaps is a great gift for boat lovers and a source of ideas and inspiration for do-it-yourselfers.
