and special guest Kurt Hasselback, MIT curator
The Herreshoff Manufacturing Company constructed the most thrilling, innovative, and graceful boats ever built in the United States, not only lavish yachts and thoroughbred racing classes but also daysailers and dinghies, weekend cruisers and motor launches.
 
For the first and only time in 2016, all three authors will be together to present their fine work. Marine historian Maynard Bray and Herreshoff expert Claas van der Linde, in collaboration with renowned nautical photographer Benjamin Mendlowitz, present the very finest of the Herreshoff designs afloat today, with insightful commentary on design evolution in every facet from lines to displacement to hardware, accompanied by full-color images of each vessel both in detail and under way, as well as unique color reproductions of Herreshoff's own archival plans and drawings. Each entry incorporates a history of the boat (or class), its owners, race results, and fate, celebrating the many that still grace our waters. Special guest, Kurt Hasselbach, curator of the Hart Nautical Collections at MIT, will also be in attendance.
 
*We are offering our membership rate to all attendees to this event. The book will be available for purchase at a special price of $10 off. Advanced registration is highly recommended.
Refreshments are provided
