Boats of the World

Working and leisure boats take on a multitude of shapes and sizes. From the hand-carved boats of forgotten fishing villages to the multi-million dollar fishing vessels of commercial harbors, they all have a character onto their own.

 

This summer, we asked our readers to send in photos of local boats so we could explore the unique crafts from around the globe. Below, we have that result. Click through the images below to see some amazing photography of some amazing boats (many have multiple images within the gallery).
