Charles E Nicholson & His Yachts Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This magnificent book is a celebration of the work of Charles E Nicholson, the most important British yacht designer of the twentieth century.

The stunning photos of internationally renowned Italian photographer Franco Pace, capture the grace and elegance of these well known yachts sailing and racing today.  In a fascinating preface, yacht historian William Collier chronicles the development of Nicholson's designs from the 1890s to the start of the Second World War.  Together they have combined a gloriously lavish tribute to the scion of the Nicholson family, which will be of enduring interest.

Synopsis:

This magnificent book is the first devoted to Charles E. Nicholson, the most important British yacht designer of the 20th century. Known internationally for his revolutionary designs, Nicholson had a significant influence on the development of yachting, having designed all the British J-class yachts, four America's Cup challengers, and a number of outstanding schooners. The stunning photography captures the exterior grace and interior elegance of these yachts. A fascinating preface chronicles the development of Nicholson's designs from the 1890s to the start of World War II.

Synopsis:

Magnificent retrospective examines the career and vessels of one of the 20th century's most important yacht designers.
