Herreshoff Yacht Sales opened in Bristol, R.I., on the campus that from 1878-1945 housed the historic Herreshoff Manufacturing Co., which built America’s Cup winners such as Columbia and Reliance.
Herreshoff Yacht Sales is on the first floor of the same building as Herreshoff Designs, which is led by Halsey Herreshoff and Adam Langerman.
Herreshoff Yacht Sales is dedicated to the sales of all Herreshoff-designed craft, including those designed by Capt. Nathanael Greene Herreshoff, L. Francis Herreshoff, Sidney Herreshoff and Halsey Herreshoff. Herreshoff Yacht Sales also represents builders of Herreshoff designs, including Bristol Boat Cos.’ Herreshoff 20, Brion Rieff’s Herreshoff Alerion 26, and Artisan Boatworks’ Herreshoff 12-1/2 and 15 Footer.
Herreshoff Yacht Sales will be led by Peter Sterrett, a former development director of the Herreshoff Marine Museum. Joining Sterrett at the helm will be Peter Brewster, the founder of Brewster Boats.
