This is another very rare publication. Just imagine, it was published nearly century-and-half ago, in 1884. This is what we call a truly classic book. Of course, some things have significantly changed since the time of the first release of this manual; however, you must agree that the fundamental laws of physics and hydrodynamics governing the behavior of the yacht remain unchanged.

The manual opens with a chapter describing the process of selecting a yacht giving some valuable instructions and practical tips to the future yacht owner. The next chapter addresses the examination of the yacht - you will know how to check your yacht and the areas where you should be concentrated on during the examination. The following two chapters are dealing with the yacht construction and equipment, while the others are dedicated to the seamanship, management of the yacht and racing.

Finally, the remainder of the manual is covering various types of yachts, for example centre-board, Brighton beach, Pollywog etc. Small racing yachts have also been paid particular attention in this volume; same approach was applied to the steam, ice yachting and canoeing - there are separate chapters for each of them. At the end, there is a dictionary of general yachting-related information for ready use.
