Principles of Yacht Design has now established itself as the standard book on the subject for practising designers, naval architecture students, discerning boat owners and the boatbuilding industry as a whole. Now revised and expanded for the third edition it examines every aspect of the process of yacht and powerboat design. The authors have used a newly designed 40 foot performance cruiser to demonstrate the practical application of yacht design theory. Beginning with the yacht's specifications, the authors examine vital topics and conclude with practical matters such as the layout of the cockpit, deck and cabin, and provide a complete weight calculation for the boat. 'This book is deeply fascinating . . . a must.' Classic Boat 'A sound and up to date manual of yacht design . . . a classic in its field.' Practical Boat Owner 'A definitive work on yacht design.'

The first guide to design aimed at every sailor, Yacht Design Explained uses state-of-the-art graphics, dynamic charts and photographs, and clear explanations to show what makes hulls, keels, ballast, rudders, foils, masts, and sails work. It reveals why certain designs perform well and others fail. The authors examine a range of boats, from a 14-foot dinghy to a 40-foot cruiser, from a catamaran to an offshore singlehander. They break through the often confusing physics of yacht design to provide an understanding that sailors can use to get the most out of their time afloat.

This book from 1905 was intended to be a concise and practical presentation of the processes involved in designing a classic yacht of these times. This handbook was thoroughly intended to be practical in character, all mathermatics and theoretical presentations having been eleminated as far as possible, so that the operations may readily be grasped by men without technical education. A special feature of this book is the series of curves for determining the proportions of sailing yachts of various sizes. The different operations involved in designing a sailing yacht are illustrated in the text by work on the 30-foot water line sloop whose plans are given in full. The complete data on this design is also given in the appendix.

A highly illustrated guide to the principles and practice of designing of yachts and small craft, aimed at all those keen to build their own boat. Concentrating primarily on hull forms, sails, keels and rudders, the book also deals with the visual aspect of design, culminating in a step-by-step procedure for constructing a boat from scratch. The book assumes no great experience of mathematics of sailing theory.

The Maritime Engineering Reference Book is a one-stop source for engineers involved in marine engineering and naval architecture. In this essential reference, Anthony F. Molland has brought together the work of a number of the world's leading writers in the field to create an inclusive volume for a wide audience of marine engineers, naval architects and those involved in marine operations, insurance and other related fields. Coverage ranges from the basics to more advanced topics in ship design, construction and operation. All the key areas are covered, including ship flotation and stability, ship structures, propulsion, seakeeping and maneuvering. The marine environment and maritime safety are explored as well as new technologies, such as computer aided ship design and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). Facts, figures and data from world-leading experts makes this an invaluable ready-reference for those involved in the field of maritime engineering. Professor A.F. Molland, BSc, MSc, PhD, CEng, FRINA. is Emeritus Professor of Ship Design at the University of Southampton, UK. He has lectured ship design and operation for many years. He has carried out extensive research and published widely on ship design and various aspects of ship hydrodynamics. * A comprehensive overview from best-selling authors including Bryan Barrass, Rawson and Tupper, and David Eyres * Covers basic and advanced material on marine engineering and Naval Architecture topics * Have key facts, figures and data to hand in one complete reference book
