Book Description

Essential reference book for anyone with an interest in old boats, lavishly illustrated with old photos. How it shows the decline in standards in public maritime transport on the Bosphorus since the municipality decommissioned most of its magnificent fleet of ferries a decade ago, replacing it with clapped out, hideously noisy timber launches. Ahmet Güleryüz is the doyen of historic shipping in Istanbul.
