The element of Design has always been deservedly considered to be one of the most important factors in all good work, and in fact nothing is more essential in all Construction than that there shall first be Design, which simply means that every necessary detail shall be reviewed, put on paper, and approved before the materials necessary for the contemplated work are touched.

Design is especially necessary even in the most elementary forms of Naval architecture, as when the lines of a boat are laid down on paper, not only is the form of the intended craft more clearly seen, but an opportunity is commonly afforded for the correction and alteration of any details which are shown by the drawings to be detrimental to the success of the boat designed.

The present publication is a true classic that is why we would recommend it to be possessed in the library of every yacht designer, yacht constructor and yachter. The text part of this rare and still popular volume by Fred Cozzens is supplemented with more than a hundred illustrations making it much easier to catch the idea. The whole history of yacht building and yachting have been covered in the book, starting from the very early days of the NY Yacht Club.
