The Bristol water front has a new boater’s destination this summer: Herreshoff Yacht Sales (HYS) has officially opened at 18 Burnside Street! HYS is located on the first floor of the same building as Herreshoff Designs, led by Halsey Herreshoff and Adam Langerman. We’re on same campus that hosted the historic Herreshoff Manufacturing Company from 1878 to 1945, which built famed America’s Cup winners such as Columbia and Reliance.
HYS is dedicated to sales of all Herreshoff-designed craft, including those designed by Captain Nathanael Greene Herreshoff, L. Francis Herreshoff, Sidney Herreshoff and Halsey Herreshoff. HYS also represents builders of Herreshoff designs, including Bristol Boat Companies’ Herreshoff 20, Brion Rieff’s Herreshoff Alerion 26, and Artisan Boatworks’ Herreshoff 12 ½ and 15 Footer.
We’re excited to continue the legacy of these beautiful and historic yachts by marrying them with the right new owner, as well as excited to support the fine craftsmanship of our builders.
Stop by and see us this summer at our new storefront in Bristol!
