Although the name of Knud Aage Nielsen is arguably not as well known as his colleagues in the pantheon of great yacht designers of the twentieth century--Olin Stephens, Nathanael Greene Herreshoff, John G. Alden, and others--it should be. Nielsen devoted his life to boat design and construction, beginning with his youth in his native Denmark. Nielsen's ability to build anything he designed gave him a unique relationship with accomplished builders.

From the beginning his plans were know for remarkable attention to form and detail. "Good enough is not a sufficient goal..." -- Aage Nielsen

Review:

...detailed...meticulous biography...one of Denmark's greatest yacht designers...fascinating story, well puncuated by those exquisite lines, which demand a lingering eye...

...Nielsen was superb creator of traditional wooden classic sailing yachts blending beauty, performance, and wholesomeness...much to enjoy in this book.

...best book I know concerning a yacht designer...beautifully published book...hundreds of plans...terrific resource in the history of yachting...

Beautiful book with photographs and drawings that show why boats designed by Nielsen remain highly prized by their owners.

... full portrait of K. Aage Nielsen and his legacy of yacht design...hundreds of pictures...sketches of preliminary lines for some of his yachts...
