Alfred Mylne the First designed exciting, beautiful yachts, which have won many races over the past 120 years – some are still collecting prizes. They have also cruised far and wide. Many still traverse the oceans, braving the blasting breeze with the confidence of their strong construction.
Each chapter of this book is about one of these famous craft, or about a class of boats. The text reveals what is so special about each design. With a fascinating set of illustrations from the Mylne archives, each boat is accompanied by reproductions of Mylne’s original plans and drawings.
This is the second book about Alfred Mylne the First’s very special designs, being a sequel to Ian Nicolson’s recent Alfred Mylne The Leading Yacht Designer: 1896-1920. Writing with expertise and enthusiasm, the author has worked in the yacht industry for seventy-one years, including twenty years with Alfred Mylne the Second.
