This superb collection of specially commissioned photographs tells the fascinating story of how and why boats, rafts, and ships have changed over the years. See how a plank boat is constructed, and look at sails from around the world, from the elegant junks and dhows of Asia to the many-masted clippers that sailed the seven seas during the 19th century. Learn why the Titanic was though to be unsinkable, and how it feels to be standing on the bridge of a modern fire ship.

Boat is a compelling and informative guide to the history and development of boats and ships worldwide.
