Practical Yacht Construction
By C.J. Watts & K.H.C. Jurd

Practical Yacht Construction has been welcomed by yacht designers and builders, throughout the world. For the amateur yachtsman it is no less valuable, since it contributes to the proper understanding of the construction of his yacht, and assists in the consideration of alterations or improvements, or the practical points and the speci?cation of a new yacht.

The ?rst edition of this work by the Chief Draughtsman to Messrs Camper & Nicholson’s Southampton yard was published in 1947 and quickly became a standard work, which has run into several impressions. Since then, however, there have been changes in construction and techniques to a greater extent than in any other period in the history of yacht building. As a result the book has had to be completely revised to take into account modern techniques and construction practices, and this has been done within the original framework, and without destroying its character, by K. H. C. Jurd, the late Mr Watts’s successor at Camper & Nicholson’s.
