Inward Bound--a 35-foot cutter built in Argentina using salvaged timber from theGeneral Belgrano

Madoc--a 24-foot clinker yawl built by hand on a Tasmanian beach

Solway Maid--the last surviving William Fife yacht

Timeless and magnificent, these yachts all have a story to tell, and they are captured with glorious full color photography.
