If you like reading about yachts, then get ready to meet your new Bible. Luxury publisher Assouline has released Yachts: The Impossible Collection, a gorgeous and massive volume that chronicles some of the most impressive and impactful seafaring vessels in recent history.

The 246-page tome contains over 200 illustrations and covers a carefully curated collection of leisure-focused boats, separating the wheat from the chaff by focusing only on the “crème de la crème” from the history of yachting. Some notable selections include Sir James Dyson’s 1930s steam yacht, Nahlin, and Aristotle Onassis’ glamorous 1960s vessel, Christina O. The volume is part of Assouline’s Ultimate Collection, which means it’s been hand-bound using traditional techniques with pages that feature hand-tipped images on art-quality paper. As such, the book is presented in a luxury linen clamshell case and includes complimentary white gloves and a signature canvas tote bag. Available now from Assouline, Yachts: The Impossible Collection is priced at $895.

Purchase: $895
