Author(s): Nicole Mays

* Tasmaniana

From Charlie Lucas, Purdon and Featherstone, Percy Coverdale and Taylor Brothers to Jock Muir, Max Creese, Purdon Brothers and Bill Foster, the 20th century saw more than 12 commercial boat building yards in operation along the Napoleon Street corridor of Battery Point near Hobart. Combined, hundreds of men were employed and thousands of vessels were built, of which many remain in existence. This book profiles and pays tribute to the 20th century boat builders of Battery Point, their yards and the vessels they built.
