Herreshoff Sailboats
By Gregory O. Jones

Herreshoff Manufacturing Company in Bristol, Rhode Island, produced the most technically advanced, popular, and prominent boats of their day. Herreshoff covers some of the major classes of Herreshoff boats including schooners, yawls, ketches, sloops, Q-, R-, and J- class yachts, and launches, not to mention early steam-powered vessels. The story begins with John and Charles Herreshoff, who founded the boatyard in 1832. The sale of Herreshoff to the Haeffner Corp. in the 1920s is also profiled, as is the company's decision to close its doors rather than to build fiberglass boats. Archival black-and-white photos illustrate a compellingly written history, and modern colour photography shows Herreshoff's role in yachting today.
