It is the most successful newcomer among the water sports magazines: YACHT classic has delighted tens of thousands of readers since it was launched a year and a half ago. With first-class photos, a unique layout and stories that have depth. The latest issue appears today.
For the first time, the Klassiker-Magazin presents a focus that provides background and creates understanding on central topics. The special in the new issue revolves around the most important raw material in traditional yachts: wood.
- What special properties make the natural material so suitable for boat building. - Which woods are used for what and why.- What prompted the Danish Admiralty to have forests reforested for shipbuilding exactly 200 years ago. How the fleet oaks standing there are guarded and managed to this day. And why boat restorers give everything to get the unique tribes
YACHT classic also presents other exclusive reports, portraits and analyzes. Author Lasse Johannsen, for example, presents the legendary steel yawl "Peter von Seestermühe", the classic under the German flag that has traveled the furthest at 450,000 nm. The "Peter", as the boat is widely known, won the HSH Nordbank blue race over the North Atlantic in July with a sovereign victory in its class. More than 70 years after that Atlantic race for which it was actually built. Owner and skipper Christoph von Reibnitz (41), who took over the former ship of the Academic Sailing Club in Kiel at the beginning of the 1990s, tells in an interview what it is like to keep a classic in good condition with limited resources and a lot of personal work.
