Description: This book covers the golden age of commuters, the years between the two world wars when commuting by water was both novelty and convenience for the wealthy, sporting business leaders of the 1920s and 1930s. The entire period covered is approximately a hundred years, beginning in 1869 with the steam yachts of the late nineteenth century. Most of the boats in this book are true yachts in a hurry — commuters able to sustain a speed of at least 18 miles per hour — 15 knots — and they are, as the photos in this book make clear, very rakish machines indeed.
