Sparkman and Stephens : Giants of Classic Yacht Design
by Adlard Coles
A celebration, in colour photographs, of the work of Sparkman and Stephens, arguably the most famous yacht company in the USA. Sparkman and Stephens's designs had a significant influence on the development of yachting and their yacht designs dominated 12-metre yacht design and the America's Cup yachts in the early years of the 20th century. Stormy Weather", "Dorade", "Nyala", "Vim", "Columbia", "Intrepid", "Courageous" and "Freedom" are just some of the yachts emanating from the design board of Sparkman and Stephens."
