The schooner yacht was developed in the United States, though very little has been written about them in this country a until now. In this in-depth look at some of the great American schooner yachts, the author uses both the original plans and drawings and current and past images to discuss their construction and history. Not only are the schooners featured in all their glory, but there is also detailed information about the designers of these boats and their contributions to the trade. See William Burgess's efficient beauty with the Rose of Sharon, Cox & Stevens's large steel-hulled cruising yacht the Deva, and Samuel Crocker's innovation and tradition with the Mahdee. This worldwide overview of the greatest sailing yachts ever built will be a wonderful resource for designers of these vessels, historians, and shipping enthusiasts.
