Featuring 180 wonderful images, Classic Boats offers an accessible, beautifully illustrated guide to some of the stunning craft that can be seen around the shores of Europe today. Covering a wide range of vessels - some dating back to the nineteenth century and extensively restored, while others are just a few years old - Nigel Sharp's writing and photographs truly bring the subject to life.
Classic boat regattas continue to grow in number and popularity throughout the world, and the breathtaking range of boats shown in this lavishly illustrated volume offers some explanation as to why they continue to captivate the hearts and minds of boating enthusiasts and the general public alike.
Nigel Sharp spent 35 years in various project management positions in the boatbuilding industry before becoming a freelance marine writer and photographer in 2010. He is a lifelong sailor who currently owns a 1963 Nordic Folkboat and he is the Commodore of St Mawes Sailing Club.
