Today, we are happy to offer you to have a look in this perfectly and generously illustrated publication dedicated to the boats — literally all kinds of boats have been addressed in the pages of this brilliant collection, starting from the simple rafts and to the schooners. The author of the volume, Graham Blackburn, uses his own inimitable style of writing and the results of his researchers - they have all resulted in this beautiful and complete guidebook to everything that can float.

The publication contains more than seven hundred entries describing all types of the vessels. The time period covered by the author is impressive - from the very first Egyptian craft dating as back as four thousand years B.C. to the latest sophisticated nuclear-powered ships of today. The content of the book has been arranged alphabetically and supplemented with an excellent nautical glossary, an index and even bibliography - it makes the book very practical for all people; there are more than six hundred drawings of the vessels included.

This is a real treasure for the people with the interest in sea and ships. Moreover, we would treat it not only as a well-organized cross-referenced guide but also as a standard concise reference book to be used by both enthusiasts and professionals.
