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.
