Reviews - What do customers think about Boat Design: Classic And New Motorboats (Designpockets)?
Misleading Title, But Great Photos Nevertheless May 31, 2008
Perhaps a better title might be: "A Nice Historical Overview of Prop-Driven American and Italian Motorboats and Yachts; with Short Bios of the Big Names in the Field Thrown In."
For an introduction to the topic (and despite its clunky English translation), it's fine, especially the great pictures. Just don't let the title fool you.
Misleading title and dissapointing book Dec 13, 2005
From the title I assumed this would deal with boat design rather than just being a compilation of photos. While they are pretty neat, even a little pertinent text would have been great. I admit this may have just been a misunderstanding on my part, but I figure I can spare the rest some greif. If you want a book with any substance, this isn't it.
