Author: Ferenc Mat A selection of the most beautiful designed and best built sailboats in North America available in stages from a bare hull to a finished yacht—by designers such as Ferers, Paine, Crealock, Luders and Peterson. Mr. Maté, the author of the nautical bestsellers From a Bare Hull and The Finely Fitted Yacht, now gives us the best books to date on the Best Boats available as semi-custom yachts in North America. Mr. Maté, has visited boatyards from Maine to California to Canada, to write in his wonderfully engaging style a study of the most beautifully designed and best built sailboats available in stages - from a bare hull to a finished yacht. In addition to design, performance and layout, his book, like no other analyzes "how" and "how well" the boats are built. Ranging from a 17' Herreshoff day-sailer to the Santa Cruz 50 flyer, the boats include the 20' flicka, the 28' Bristol Channel Cutter, the Peterson 35, Crealock 37, Freres 40, Cherubini 44 and many others by designers such as Bill Luders, Ted Brewer, William Atkin, Chuck Paine and Robert Perry. Using the analyzed boats as examples, the book for in design and construction when contemplating the purchases of any boat. For the boat-builder or would-be boat-builder, the book is a must, for it points out the weaknesses as well as the strengths of almost all aspects of construction from hull lay-up and bulkhead installation down to the placement of hinges for cockpit seats, using hundreds of photos and illustrations to clarify.
