Each of our yacht books reflects the taste and aims of each client and is, therefore, entirely unique. Much like the yachts they portray, the books are custom-designed statements of personality.
We have photographed and written about yachts which were record breakers as much as yachts which were created as retreats for the owners (no fanfare necessary, thank you.) We are very comfortable handling personal requests and are adept at producing block-busters as much as quiet, low-key productions.
Please enjoy the photographs on this page – they will give you an idea of some of the projects we have produced thus far. (Slideshow controls are at the bottom of each slideshow window.)
Georgia was the largest sloop in the World at the time of her launch – she was designed by Butch-Dalrymple-Smith, Paolo Scanu and Glade Johnson. Working closely with the owner’s representative and the broker, we published a commemorative book in three editions – a slipcased limited edition for the builder Alloy Yachts and contractors, a leather-bound Owner’s edition of only a few single copies and a retail edition (an unusual occurrence for us.)
“Janice of Wyoming” was a 131-foot sloop built for an experienced yachtsman, who had her designed as a family yacht, suitable for extended cruising. Dubois Naval Architects were the designers. We produced a 176-page book documenting the design and build process in detail and then showcasing the finished yacht. We did a numbered edition of 500 copies, a few of which were finished as leather-bound and presented in hand-made boxes. In addition to delivering shipments of books to several locations for use by the Owner, a substantial number of copies were despatched direct to individual recipients around the World.
“Tiara” was the second-largest sloop in the World at the time of her launch and the start of a successful new direction for Dubois Naval Architects. Her interior was drawn by John Munford Design. The book we produced reflected the client’s own strong creative vision, and his desire to present a memorable gift for charter guests. We produced a limited edition of several hundred copies, and hand-delivered the first two cartons to the yacht in time for the Monaco Yacht Show.
