    I know there has been probably lots of post about this topic, but I am a beginner student and need help on choosing the most basic books on Naval Architecture. Thanks.

    Are you in a school program, or learning on your own?

    For home study (and general home use - it's a nice book) we recommend "SHIP KNOWLEGE" by Dokkum.

    For serious study, some of my students have recommended "Applied Naval Architecture" by Zubaly

    Hope this helps!

    Larsson & Eliasson, Principles of Yacht Design. Modern boat building with some insight to ISO standards.
    Skenes original book was reprinted some years ago but there are also revised editions available around. Good reference book for wooden boat building.

    Here at University of British Columbia our program is a one year program for candidates who have completed their undergraduate work. Come on up after graduation! :)

    We recommend the Dokkum book for preparatory study.
