The Book

Introducing All The Oceans

The decision to write “All The Oceans” was influenced by my involvement with the University of Auckland Engineering Department creating a Masters of Yacht Engineering program. The most frequent question from students, ‘how did you do it’?  “All The Oceans” was written in response to this often asked question.

I did not pursue what is now considered the conventional way to become a yacht designer.  Always fascinated with voyages of exploration under sail, a natural talent for drawing, and 3 years working in a wood boat fabrication shop, the combination of these laid the foundation for me to strike out on my own. Without hesitation I grasped every opportunity that came my way.

“All The Oceans, Designing by the seat of my pants” describes how I did it.



What are they saying about “All The Oceans”


“Ron Holland’s ‘All The Oceans’, is exciting from page one; it pulls the reader through the pages, cheering Ron on all the way. An amazing life story from one of the world’s greatest yacht designers!”
Stuart Woods, Author of 50 New York Times bestselling novels

“Making a calculation simply based on the list of Ron Holland’s achievements one would arrive at a lifespan of at least 210 years. He has lived at least 3 lives worth of adventures and accomplished at least 3 times more than could be expected of a mere mortal.”
Oleg Harencar, Director/Producer of the film series, Life on the Water
