Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

There is nothing magical or particularly brilliant about designing a boat, and you don't need to be an Einstein or a Leonardo da Vinci to sketch out the sort of craft that appeals to you. Indeed this first sketch that many potential owners will have made at some time is the most important part of a design. It needs only the bare bones to be fleshed out and some checks and balances to complete the design process. This may take a little time but it certainly isn't difficult. And the same processes apply for a dinghy as well as a cruising yacht.

John Teale takes the reader step-by-step through the stages of designing both power and sailing boats, while also explaining the reasons behind the process. Sketches and reproductions of working drawings are used throughout to help understanding so that by the end of the book even a first time designer's effort can be translated by a builder into a sensible and workmanlike reality.

Since it was first published, How to Design a Boat has proved itself a bestseller. The second edition simplifies several calculations and introduces new designs.

About the Author

John Teale is a naval architect. He was technical editor of Motor Boat & Yachting for some years. His design work has ranged from fast power boats and motor cruisers, to passenger ferries, fishing boats and cruising yachts. Virtually all his designs are 'one-offs' and have been built all over the world.
