Magnificent mahogany-hulled runabouts with growling inboard engines deliver high-speed thrills as they slice through the waves!

From the period just prior to WWI through the swingin' '60s, this book features restored and factory-original examples of the stylish creations that became the sports cars of the nautical set.
