Former Classic Boat editor Nic Compton has spent over 20 years sailing and photographing classic yachts, and this is the culmination of his decades-long passion - a stunning collection showcasing the 20 most beautiful and fascinating classic boats still sailing today.
Bona Fide - the original fin-keeler that was 70 years ahead of her time
Inward Bound - a 35ft cutter built in Argentina using salvaged timber from the General Belgrano
Madoc - a 24ft clinker yawl built on a Tasmanian beach by hand
Partridge - an 1885 cutter that took 18 years to restore
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 colour photography.
