British Motor Coasters

This product is currently sold out.

The first new book from Charles Waine for quite some time, and definitely one to be savoured. His subject here is the history of the British built motor coaster from the first, delivered in May 1912, to the last, launched in 1990.

As well as an excellent text, as with any Waine book there are large numbers of both photographs, largely B&W, and  copious quantities of highly detailed ships’ plans. There is also a chapter on the development of the power source for these vessels.

An absolute ‘must’ for anyone interested in merchant ships and their development. 216 pages. Hardbound.
