Product Description

All vessels need to be buoyant in order to float, and need to be stable in order to stay upright.

This revised edition of RYA Stability and Buoyancy (which includes a glossary of terms, explaining all the technical jargon) deals with everything relating to these issues and also includes hazards common to most boats, including:

  • Bad loading
  • Breaking waves
  • Resonant rolling
  • Broaching in a following sea
  • Characteristics of different boat types, (i.e. sailing dinghies, small catamarans, offshore and coastal monohull sailing boats)
  • Maximum safe heel angle


Filled with top tips throughout, this book is perfect for:

  • the ideal, clear and simple reference tool to aid you in teaching this subject
  • Coded vessels – the perfect guide on this critical subject matter
  • Yachtmaster candidates: clearly explains the AVS which candidates should know of their boats and other areas
