First published in 1975, this classic guide is a collection of basic boat plans of a variety of Benford designs, ranging in size from 7 to 131 feet in length and selected from the custom designs created over the past three decades. It is designed as the spark to fire one’s ideas about the sort of boat one really wants or to suggest an idea for a new boat. The fourth edition includes a number of designs new since the third edition and is heavily illustrated with photographs and plan drawings.


"Traditional but with contemporary elements, imaginative and unfettered by allegiance to rating rules or fashion, anachronistic, eclectic, eccentric, but always effective and user-friendly."  â€â€Pacific Yachting
