Musician/boat-builder Billy Joel and his design team gave a presentation
to students of naval architecture and invited guests at Webb Institute.
Joel and his team discussed several of the boats he has designed and
built over the years, including his most recent project, a 57' commuter
yacht now under construction at Coecles Harbor Marine. Pictured with Mr.
Joel is PMY contributing editor George Petrie.
