and Rebecca Chase Herreshoff founded the Herreshoff Marine Museum
to preserve and perpetuate the unique accomplishment of the
Herreshoff Manufacturing Company and the key role it played in the
indusrial revolution and the America's Cup competition. "

beautifully restored yachts.

various yachts are part
