9780070605633: Yacht Style: Design and Decor Ideas for Your Boat

Here is a book as useful to boatowners as it is beautiful. Yacht Style provides a wealth of innovative solutions to questions of light, space, color, materials, access, and stowage in boats from small cruisers to megayachts, both power and sail.

One of today's most gifted nautical writers, Dan Spurr roams freely above and below decks, missing nothing, sometimes applauding, sometimes shaking his head. His lively and opinionated text is further enhanced by interviews with such luminaries as powerboat designer Tom Fexas, cruising sailboat designer Robert Perry, and yacht interior designer Blanche Bloomfield.

Carefully designed and crafted, Yacht Style is a book worthy of its subject--the boatowner's ultimate idea book.

About the Author:

Dan Spurr was for 12 years the editor of Practical Sailor newsletter, the “Consumer Reports” of sailing and one of the most respected boating publications, noted among other things for its new and used boat reviews, which have been published in book form as Practical Boat Buying. He is a former senior editor of Cruising World magazine and author of two highly regarded IM boating books as well as two critically acclaimed books of narrative nonfiction. He bought and refurbished his first fiberglass sailboat (a Pearson Vanguard) in the 1960s, and has since renovated three other boats including his current C & C 41. He is now the editor of Professional Boatbuilder magazine. AUTHOR HOMETOWN: Bozeman, Montana

Review:

``. . .a brilliant, beautiful book. . .an excellent volume that offers a condensed course in the aesthetics of style, no matter whether your tastes run to megayachts, muscleboats, pocket cruisers, vintage-sailing craft, or funky commercial-to-pleasure conversions.'' (Professional Boatbuilder)

``Spur's book sparkles like a classic, well-appointed yacht in a marina full of indistinguisable production boats. . .This book reminds us of why we are all hopelessly addicted to this crazy passion called yachting.'' (Sailing)

``An exciting book. . .both beautiful and useful.'' (WoodenBoat)
