Boats showcases some of the most amazing boats, ships, and watercraft to set sail, from Chinese junks and luxury yachts to fireboats and deep-sea submersibles. The most impressive features and feats of each watercraft are highlighted, while action photos show just how well these boats take to the water. There are 'Stats & Facts' boxes loaded with technical details, a glossary that explains seafaring terminology and technology and a 'Did you know?' section that includes little-known facts about each boat and ship featured. Find out about... The Deep Flight submersible, an underwater boat with wings. The World, a luxury cruise ship you can actually live on. The California Quake drag boat that races across the waves at 230 mph! The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, a boat with a crew the size of a small town.
