Nat 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.

L. Francis Herreshoff created some great yacht designs. His designs are marked by clean, sweeping lines and a simplicity of hull and rig that show that they have been drawn by a true artist. In each design, he strips away every non-essential and leaves the true elements of a masterpiece. His father, Nathanael G. Herreshoff, had the same genius, but whereas the work of the father emphasized engineering perfection, the work of the son emphasized artistic perfection. Francis Herreshoff's work certainly shows the influence of his father, but his designs are tempered with an even older tradition. One of Captain Nat's famous designs was the little Buzzards Bay 12 1/2-footer, which may be examined in the plans at the back of this book in the form of Francis Herreshoff's slightly enlarged copy, the Buzzards Bay 14-footer. It is interesting to note the influence of this design on L. Francis' well-known cruising ketch, the H-28. But the schooner yacht America, which came out decades before Captain Nat began designing yachts, also had considerable influence on several famous Francis Herreshoff designs, such as the Tioga II, now Ticonderoga. And L. Francis was obviously intrigued with the possibilities of the double-ender, an ancient form of hull. The primary designs in this book are based on L. Francis Herreshoff's series of articles in the Rudder magazine of the 1940's and 1950's detailing how to build many of his designs. It was a very popular series, and a considerable number of boats were built according to the plans and instructions L. Francis included. We have added to these design plans for 46 additional small craft and cruising yachts designed by L. Francis. It is our hope that his book will lead to the building of more and more boats from the designs of L. Francis Herreshoff. There could be no more fitting tribute to him.
