Publisher Description

The Halverson name is synonymous with boats designed with beautiful balanced lines, and performance to match but also with idyllic holidays afloat in rented motor cruisers with the winning Halvorsen brothers' superb racing yachts, Peer Gynt, Anitra V and Freya and with the boats of World War II - fast 38s, 62s and Fairmiles, and the motor cruiser that sank the Japanese mini submarine in Sydney Harbour.
