This is the second edition of the popular Spanish for Cruisers. In this new edition, it has been greatly expanded so that it now covers ALL the language and vocabulary necessary to have when you cruise the Spanish-speaking countries of the Caribbean, Central and South America and Europe. You won’t be able to find another source that provides boaters and marine interests with the practical, specialized phrases they need to communicate. You will be instructed in how to talk with port captains, dock attendants, marina and boatyard staff, mechanics, marine technicians, rescuers, fishermen and divers. Spanish for Cruisers is just as useful ashore for food provisioning, shopping, dining, medical care, banking, phone, internet, transportation and directions. This book comes completely indexed in English and Spanish, with easy-to-use pronunciation for every word, plus illustrations and diagrams of systems and boat parts, Spanish for Cruisers will be the boater’s essential companion throughout their stay in Spanish-speaking countries.
