Beautiful classic sailing yachts built or restored from a bygone era displaying exquisite craftsmanship, design and photogenic qualities. These prints, whether in colour, black and white or sepia monochrome are timeless. The pictures have been taken in the Solent with its sea colour mix of emerald and viridian around the Isle of Wight famous for the iconic Needles Lighthouse; the open waters of Carrick Roads on the Cornish Coast of England off Falmouth;around the stunning Kyle's and islands of Scotland's west coast; the deep blue of the Mediterranean sea; and the quintessentially Caribbean island of Antigua, providing wonderful backdrops to these classic sail boats
The photographic prints shown here are a small selection of the thousands taken, and represent a prestige portrayal of these fine craft.
With designers such as Dijkstra & Partners, Sparkman & Stephens, Simms Brothers, Nathanael Herreshoff, Laurent Giles, Charles E. Nicholson, Alfred Mylne, Hoek Design, Robert Clark, Johan Anker, and my favourite of all, William Fife III all represented here, these prints will showcase their classic lines the wall of your home, office or business.
I have had the pleasure - and some discomfort - in capturing these fine art photographs and posters. I hope you enjoy them.
