Books For Designers
Principles of Yacht Design: by Lars Larsson and Rolf E Eliasson. International Marine, 1994. A very good comprehensive text on yacht design. It is modern and up to date. It introduces not only all the basic elements, but use of Computer Aided Design as well. However, if deals only with sailing yachts, although some of the basic principles are the same for both power and sail. It is written in a way that both the professional and amateur can use this book.
Skene's Elements of Yacht Design: 8th Edition by Kinney, Published by Dodd and Mead. I do not know when the last edition was published, but this is the granddaddy and the bible for designers. Some of the information is out of date but the basics are all there. This book should be on every designers book shelf.
