The Troller Yacht Book: A Powerboater's Guide to Crossing Oceans Without Getting Wet or Going Broke

The Troller Yacht Book: A Powerboater's Guide to Crossing Oceans Without Getting Wet or Going Broke Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When boat designer George Buehler realized that he no longer wanted to cruise the world's oceans under sail, he decided to create a line of powerboats that sailors could love and anyone could afford. For inspiration, he turned to the light, lithe salmon trollers of the Pacific Northwest, among the most efficient, seaworthy, and beautiful powerboats ever built. With plans for troller yachts from 38 to 70 feet and detailed information about everything from design theory, building, and outfitting to converting commercial boats, this book is essential reading for anyone thinking about ocean cruising who refuses to spend $500,000 on a boat and $500 a day on fuel. * Buehler's Backyard Boatbuilding is one of the best-selling boatbuilding books of the past decade. Hundreds of Buehler's rugged, inexpensive sailboats cruise the world's oceans, and his new ultra-economical powerboat designs are quickly proving just as popular. He lives on Whidbey Island, Washington.

Book News Annotation:

Buehler continues his long campaign against wildly expensive boats that sacrifice comfort, economy, and safety for a slight increase in speed. He offers designs for his new ultra-economical Troller Yacht. He discusses cruising the ocean, the difference between a trawler and a troller, design considerations, systems, plans, estimating costs, and other aspects.
