“Herreshoff Sailboats” covers some of the major classes of Herreshoff boats including schooners, yawls, ketches, sloops, Q-, R-, and J-Class yachts and lanches. 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. The epilogue explains the company’s decision not to build fiberglass boats and close its doors. Vintage black and whilte photos will tell the story and modern color photography will show Herreshoff’s role in yachting today.
