Description

The story of the Herreshoff Mfg Co. is the story of a remarkable American dynasty. It is a story as complex and surprising as the minds and characters of the two brilliant Rhode Island brothers who founded the company over a century ago. It directly reflects the tastes and desires of the robber barons who were among the firm’s chief patrons. Ultimately it becomes a study in marine art, as practiced perhaps by the greatest yacht designers who ever lived – and by the dedicated craftsmen who faithfully translated his visions into masterworks of metal, wood and canvas.
