    In , Smith published The knot Sailboat, in which he set out an innovative sailboat design inspired by the traditional proa sailed by the peoples of the Pacific Ocean. Smith's designs revolved around the concept of the "aerohydrofoil," where the boat's keel and sail are separated from each other by an outrigger system. The joy of sailing for the do-it-yourself shipbuilder. Feel the power of a motorless waterborne machine that can make better than 43 knots in a knot wind. Read this book and emulate the writer, Bernard Smith, as he moves design art toward the ultimate "sailing" machine. A beautiful book that will give you years of contemplative pleasure.

      Styled by Espen Øino and built by Danish Yachts in for the owner of Princess Mariana, Moon Goddess - now listed for sale with Burgess - was in many respects the predecessor of Shooting Star. The carbon fibre open sports yacht is light and manoeuvrable, with 16 cylinder MTU diesels driving twin water jets for speeds of up to 53 knots. This design has been considered by others as well, such as the Monomaran designs by "The 40 knot Sailboat" author Bernard Smith, and these designs been called 3-point proas by some, a reference to the 3 point hulls used in hydroplanes. A previous record holding design, the Crossbow II, owned by Timothy Colman was a proa/catamaran hybrid.

      Convertibles are 60 to 90 feet now, with prices ranging from $4 million to $12 million or more, depending on the level of customization. “The ideal size for a sportfishing boat in the ’50s was about 40 to 50 feet,” says Conoley. “They were 8- to knot boats. Now they’re to knot boats.”. Built by Robertson and Caine in South Africa, the Leopard 48 is the private version of The Moorings 48 charter version, so if you want to try before you buy, book a charter vacation and give a similar boat a workout for a week or two. With more than 1, square feet of sail area, the boat should sail well.

Lots of thought provoking Ideas/5. He published it all in a fantastic book called 'THE 40 KNOT SAILBOAT'. I came across this book working in a chandlery back in Queensland, Australia and it ended up changing my life.

When I first saw SAILROCKET as a th scale model I knew immediately the theory it was based upon. The latest Aussie-driven effort uses a fundamental concept first dreamt up some 50 years earlier by Bernard Smith in his book, The knot Sailboat.

Talk about being ahead of his time – a rough diagram of what could pass for VSR2 is sketched on the front page of Smith’s hardcover. The idea of adding a hydrofoil to a sailing boat was first conceived by Bernard Smith, a rocket scientist, who wrote about it in his book – The 40 Knot Sailboat – in (see, “Messing about with boats”).Sailrocket's founder Malcolm Barnsley, an engineer from wind turbine firm Vestas, stumbled across the book during his quest to design the world's fastest sailing : Robin Hague.
