Classic Classes

WoodenBoat Books


By Vanessa Bird

Packed with more than 150 designs, the focus is on the well-known and still active class boats, yet covers over 125 years of boating. Handsomely designed, color throughout, the book is divided into three (color coded) sections: Dinghy/Keelboats, Olympic, and Yacht classes. Entries include profile drawing, photographs, basic boat specs, background info, plans availability, class contact, designer, and more. Plus there's a sail insignia guide to help you identify boats on the water, and there's an index to help you find the boats.
