One of the best known and most prolific American designers of sailing yachts, Bob Perry is generally credited with starting the "performance cruising" movement that introduced the concept of sailing speed to offshore cruising yachts.
In 1974 after spending several years in apprenticeship with other notables in the field, he opened his own yacht design office on Shilshole Bay in Seattle. The body of work produced since then has established the Perry office as one of the leaders in performance oriented cruising yachts.
He has also become the most widely published writer on sailing yacht design and related subjects in many years.
(Eds. note: Both his books and many articles that have appeared in various publications have been valuable resources in the creation of this site.)
