Former Classic Boat editor Nic Compton has spent over 20 years sailing and photographing classic yachts, and this is the culmination of his decades-long passion--a stunning collection showcasing the 20 most beautiful and fascinating classic boats still sailing today.
Bona Fide--the original fin-keeler that was 70 years ahead of her time
Inward Bound--a 35-foot cutter built in Argentina using salvaged timber from the General Belgrano
Madoc--a 24-foot clinker yawl built by hand on a Tasmanian beach
Partridge--an 1885 cutter that took 18 years to restore
Solway Maid--the last surviving William Fife yacht
Timeless and magnificent, these yachts all have a story to tell, and they are captured with glorious full color photography.
