Herreshoff and His Yachts by Franco Pace
Book DescriptionNat Herreshoff was one of the giants of early 20th century yacht design - an innovator, a bold thinker but most of all a designer of graceful, beautiful racing yachts, many of which are still winning classic regattas today. He designed a panoply of outstanding gaff riggers and Bermudian sloops for the America's Cup and remains one of the most revered yacht designers of the 1920s and 1930s. His standing is equalled only by the likes of William Fife and Charles Nicholson. This book is a magnificent photographic collection celebrating the wide variety and scale of Nat Herreshoff's work, showcasing his most outstanding yachts. Franco Pace's stunning photography captures their sheer grace and elegance in a truly fitting tribute which will thrill Herreshoff's devotees as well as lovers of classic yachts.
