"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."

"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."
