Herreshoff: American Masterpieces
by Bray, Maynard & Benjamin Mendlowitz
The name Herreshoff has been a synonym for "classic American yacht" for more than a century. Led by its founder–Captain Nathanael Green Herreshoff, who died in 1938–the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company has produced countless beautiful, fast, and seaworthy craft. The team of historian Maynard Bray, Herreshoff expert Claas van der Linde, and photographer Benjamin Mendlowitz here present an array of the finest Herreshoff vessels extant today, with images of both sailing action and finish detail, archival drawings and plans, and insightful design notes.
