Format: Hardcover
This publication from Vendome Press celebrates some of the world's most lavishly decadent floating palaces. The book features luxury yachts that are special for one reason or another, for beauty, speed, technological advancement and more. The book includes the classically extravagant Christina O which was owned by Aristotle Onassis as well as more modern beauties like the Maltese Falcon and the 118 WallyPower. The book profiles 21 yachts in detail with gorgeous color photographs of the exterior and interior of each yacht both close up and from a distance. Outrageous Yachts provides information about the yachts' builders and designers. The book's stunning shots of teak decks and graceful bows slicing through the water bring the world of yachting up close.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book for yacht enthusiasts and also for anyone looking for yacht design inspiration. The introduction provides an overview of the wide range of yachts, highlighting technical specifications, interiors and amenities, and celebrity status. 20 yachts are featured, with a chapter of 6-12 pages devoted to each. There are, of course, images of the ships on open seas and in beautiful ports, but the bulk of the photography is devoted to the decks and interiors, with the occasional picture of an engine room, control room, etc. The interiors range from fabulously restored early 20th-century yachts to sleek modern designs. Living, dining, sleeping, recreation, and entertainment areas are all depicted.

The text of each chapter briefly explains the history of the yacht and discusses the most salient features, including size, power source (sail, steam, diesel), crew size, number of guests that can be accommodated, and guest amenities. Also noted are the features that make the particular yacht stand out - the most advanced control system, the opulence of the materials, the care required to start up the restored steam engines, etc. The authors also include information about the layout and materials of the interior spaces.

A final section provides a glimpse into the future of yacht design, with sketches and renderings of yachts not yet built. Each ship is described briefly in a paragraph or two that highlight the structural, material and/or technological innovations.

All in all, an excellent source of inspiration! Note, however, that it does not include instructions, plans, or information for the DIY owner; this is inspiration and eye candy, not a how-to guide.
