Description
Knowledgeably written and beautifully illustrated with photos and drawings throughout, Ferenc Máté's classic Best Boats is an evaluation of the most elegantly designed and best-built sailboats available, in stages from a bare hull to a finished yacht. From the ageless 17-foot Herreshoff daysailer to the ultra-light 50-foot Santa Cruz flyers, the book features some of the finest works of such designers as German Frers, Doug Peterson, and Lyle Hess, as well as interviews with legendary builders. In addition to evaluating overall design, performance, and layout, Máté analyzes how the boats are built and shows what to look for when contemplating the purchase of any sailboat. A vintner as well as a seafarer, the multifaceted author is known for memoirs and essays like From a Bare Hull, A Reasonable Life: Toward a Simpler, Secure, More Humane Existence and A Vineyard in Tuscany: A Wine Lover's Dream. Máté's love of boats and the sea has also inspired a series of rousing adventure novels starring the wayfaring sailor Dugger and his half-Kwakiutl mate Nello.
