Synopsis: This fascinating and authoritative history of the Purdy Boat Company, one of the most famous makers of custom yachts and racing boats in the 1920s and 1930s, is based on official company documents and correspondence and on reminiscences of family members and boat owners, and augmented by many photographs and line drawings of classic Purdy boats. The name "Purdy" evokes a bygone era of classic race boats and cruisers, and contributions to this book from owners and former owners of Purdy boats, librarians and museum officials, classic-boat enthusiasts, family members, and others, make it a living testimony to Ned and Gil Purdy, designers and builders of some of the best raceboats and cruisers America has ever known.
