Herreshoff and America’s Cup Museum of Bristol, RI. 

Editor's Note:

I recently had the opportunity to talk with Bill Knowles, (Director of Operations, and Jasmine Blackmare, Webmaster, of the Herreshoff and America’s Cup Museum of Bristol, RI. 

Nathanial Herreshoff, one of the premier boat designers and builders of the late 19th and early 20th century, was famous for innovative designs in both power and sail.  To have a “Herreshoff” was a real status symbol – cherished by all and affordable by the very rich.

His son L. Francis Herreshoff continued this tradition of innovative design and highest quality.  A recent article in Sounding magazine praised a particular vessel with the phrase “…built by L. Francis Herreshoff himself.” 

Review this information, especially the page on visiting the site – there may be an opportunity for free dockage or a mooring.
