CoverPrinciples of Yacht Design : Lars Larsson, Rolf Eliasson / Hardcover / Published 1995 ~ Ships in 2-3 days

"This has to rate as one of the best volumes written in recent years on the complex subject of sailing boat design. It includes many clear diagrams, formulae, graphs and examples to take the reader from start to completion. Good reference work for the student or serious designer. Highly recommended"

The Symmetry of Sailing : The Physics of Sailing for Yachtsmen : Ross Garrett, Dave Wilkie (Illustrator) / Paperback / Published 1996. ~ Ships in 2-3 days

"This book very ably covers the deeply technical side of yacht designing. Much of it will go over the heads of the casual reader but it very clearly puts across the principles of hydrodynamics, aerodynamics, stability etc with the assistance of many crisp diagrams and photographs. The author, a nuclear physics lecturer and researcher, races catamarans. Highly recommended."

Understanding Boat Design : Ted Brewer / Paperback / Published 1997 ~ Ships in 2-3 days

"This was my favourite reference book when I was a design student. Few people have ever explained a complicated subject with such clear simplicity. A very useful book for those who want to understand the basics of yacht design without drowning in complicated formulae which require a mathematics doctorate to fully understand. Highly recommended."

CoverYacht Designing and Planning : For Yachtsmen, Students, and Amateurs : Howard I. Chapelle / Hardcover / Published 1995 ~ Ships in 2-3 days
