William Fife – Master of the Classic Yacht


Those who are deterred by the £45 price tag will miss a real treat. The Italian yachting photographer Franco Pace has included 19 of the surviving Fife yachts ranging in size from the 108ft Altair through to the 27ft Yvette. Franco has provided a specification together with a brief history of each featured yacht to accompany his wonderful photographs. Although this is principally a photographic book it is not the type of book to be simply flicked through. You will want plenty of time to take in the detail of these photographs some of which have been reproduced over a double spread. Franco’s breathtaking sailing shots have been balanced with superb detail shots taken both on deck and down below.
