Beautiful color photographs and evocative text transport the reader back to the golden age of Northwest yachting, when custom-designed and custom-built wooden yachts cruised the inland waters of the British Columbia and Washington.

The Northwest is a premier center for classic wooden boats, and this book showcases nearly 40 of these beautiful craft. Most of these boats were built during the 1920s and 30s and have been lovingly restored to their original condition. Admire the gorgeous lines and teak decks of the exteriors, then go below to see fine woodwork -- gleaming varnished surfaces, bronze fittings, customized designs -- all the lavish details and craftsmanship that make these boats floating works of art from a bygone era.
