Product Description

Maximum quantity available reached.

If you've been doing a little boat dreaming, this book by Mike O'Brien might just help you find your focus. Good Sailboat Designs is a compilation of some of Mike's favorites for camp-cruising, daysailing, and weekenders, culled from Boat Design Quarterly which he has been publishing since the 1990s.

This new book is all about sail, and we're hoping in the new year he begins work on a similar format book, this one featuring his favorite power boats.

Mike's design commentaries are well worth the read as you'll not only learn... you'll enjoy.
