The Guide to Wooden Power Boats
W. W. Norton & Company, 1998 - Transportation - 164 pages
This small, elegant book of the most gorgeous wooden powerboats in the world is divided into five categories -- launches, runabouts and racers, power cruisers, motor yachts, and work boats. Among the magnificent vessels included are Kittywake, a 100-year-old British steam launch, and Jessica, a legendary 75-foot motor yacht built in 1930 whose early years were spent as a fast commute to New York City through Long Island Sound. Also presented here are converted shrimp boats, tugboats, gold cup racers, and the stunning Principia, a gleaming 96-foot power yacht and favorite among enthusiasts.
