The Yacht Owner's Manual: Everything you need to know to get the most out of your yacht by Andy Du Port

Owning a boat involves sailors developing a whole new skill set and taking on a raft of new responsibilities, but this essential handbook takes the stress out of what should be an enjoyable, rewarding next step, and shares a wealth of practical advice on what might initially seem daunting new challenges.

Drawn from over 35 years of the author's own experiences, this book is packed with expert wisdom and hand-holding guidance on every aspect of owning, equipping, maintaining, sailing and - of course - enjoying your first boat.

Topics covered include:
Choice of boat; Insurance; Assessing (and costing) moorings and berths; Navigation and safety equipment; Domestic equipment (galley, bedding, clothing, etc); Navigation (including in fog); Manoeuvring in close spaces; Sources of weather information and forecasts; Responsibilities towards crew; Catering and cooking; Maintenance advice (daily tips, winterising, engine servicing, fitting out for spring, etc); Paperwork (including customs forms); Dealing with emergencies; and more.

Filled with colour photos and diagrams throughout, this comprehensive guide is indispensable for new skippers who have learned to sail at a sailing school or on a friend's boat and are ready to take the next step.
