Australian Yachtsman

Australian Yachtsman is essential reading for anyone contemplating buying a yacht. It describes the process, deciding what to look at, surveys, ownership issues, moorings etc. There are potted reviews of 42 popular yachts on the Australian market. With pictures and details of each with a price range. Sections deal with buying, seamanship and sailing, yacht maintenance, the systems on yachts (electrical/mechanical/rigging). There is quite a history on how these boats were built in Australia from the 1960's to the 1970's and how you can improve them to fit your lifestyle. It is something of a "Budget Busters Guide" to having a family cruiser for under $50,000. Lastly it reflects the author's experience in cruising safely up and down the NSW East Coast.
