Product Description & Reviews

The definitive book on powerboat design and performance--a unique wealth of material from the internationally renowned expert in powerboating, featuring contributions from leading designers on everything from hull design to propulsion. Set to become the bible for powerboat owners and operators for years to come, this long overdue analysis and review of modern powerboat design and operation explores how powerboats have developed, why, and how design impacts on control and performance.Every aspect of the powerboat's design is considered individually and as part of the whole. Different hull designs are assessed for their benefits and drawbacks. Engine types (whether petrol, diesel, electric or hybrid) and their influence on performance are explored and the nature and impact of different propulsion systems and driving controls is also examined.All factors that influence operation are featured, from how to optimize performance in varied sea conditions, matching speed to sea state, as well as tackling various common and uncommon scenarios (from running an inlet to coping with tidal races and harbor maneuvering) and issues relating to crew safety.Dag Pike is the world-renowned guru on powerboats. He has attracted contributions from many of the top international powerboat designers, providing a wealth of expert knowledge and specialist insights about modern powerboats.The sum of their know-how makes this book essential for all powerboat owners, operators and designers, whether in the leisure, commercial or military sector, and will help ensure all prospective owners get the right boat for their requirements.
