Herreshoff Sailboats by Gregory O Jones
Written (and signed!) by one of HMM's own tour guides, Herreshoff Sailboats is sure not to disappoint!
Herreshoff Manufacturing Company produced the most technically advanced, popular, and prominent boats of their day. Jones 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. Archival black-and-white photos illustrate a compellingly written history, and modern color photography shows Herreshoff's role in yachting today.
