Describes various internal and external appointments that enhance the beauty and ease of yachting and shows how to incorporate them into the limited space of the average ship, in a richly illustrated nautical reference that contains more than two hundred projects, all designed to enhance a vessel's seaworthiness, safety, comfort, and beauty.

Ferenc Máté, author of such nautical bestsellers as From a Bare Hull, Shipshape and The World's Best Sailboats, shows how you can turn almost any sailboat into a safe, practical and beautiful yacht. The over 200 small, do-it-yourself projects, all charmingly illustrated by Candace Máté, range from cockpit-grates and miniature fireplaces to sun-awnings and skylights. The combined volumes cover both the interior and exterior with chapters dedicated to the galley, chart table, stowage, engine room, cockpit, safety gear, ground tackle, sails and canvas. Mate's writing, always authoritative, unfailingly humorous, is engaging and a joy to read. This is a major work that should be in every ship's library.
The Boat Improvement Manual: After 10 printings and 70,000 hardback copies sold, this nautical classic is finally available in trade paperback.
