Yachting Collections

Please note that our collections are expanding regularly; these lists should unfortunately not be considered as necessarily up-to-date or definitive.

If you are able to visit, our OPAC (Public Access Catalogue), based on Koha, contains all books that are publicly available to consult as well as those that are maintained in our Rare Book room where the assistance of our librarian staff is required; regular visitors can undertake specific training for more convenient access to our rare books and other documents.
