This book recounts the adventure of this classic yacht, reflecting the passion and energy that have gone into the restoration of a legend. From its maiden voyage to its restoration, "Eilean" navigates the reader through the highlights of naval architecture and yachting, illustrated with archival documents, historical plans, and specially commissioned photographs. This glorious celebration of one of the worlds finest yachts will captivate collectors, aficionados, and specialists alike.
