Eat well at every meal and enjoy the voyage.

Cooking on a small boat—sail or power—requires special attention few new boaters understand. Sylvia Williams Dabney is a longtime live-aboard sailor with more than sixty thousand offshore miles who understands the necessity of a well-stored pantry and loves collecting recipes from around the world. In The Boater’s Cookbook, Sylvia shares everything anyone needs to know about creating stunning meals in a small boat galley.

Readers will find a comprehensive list of what gadgets, gear, and supplies to bring and how to store them in limited space aboard a fully functioning yacht galley—whether it’s a twenty-seven-foot sailboat or a sixty-foot motor cruiser. Sylvia also offers up time-tested recipes by longtime sailors, and the stories that came along with them. Recipes are organized in accessible chapters:

  • Appetizers
  • Soups & Stews
  • Salads
  • Seafood
  • And Much, Much More!

  • Boaters with limited space and cramped galleys can enjoy every meal if they know the tricks acquired by Sylvia Williams Dabney and the boaters she has met over a lifetime of cruising.
