Fodor's Review

This maritime museum is devoted to the sport of yachting, and honors the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company, maker of yachts for eight consecutive America's Cup defenses. The museum's several dozen boats range from an 8½-foot dinghy to the Defiant, a 75-foot successful America's Cup defender. Halsey Herreshoff, a four-time cup defender and the grandson of yacht designer and company founder Nathanael Greene Herreshoff, established the hall of fame in 1992 as an arm of the museum, which hosts talks on yacht design and restoration, and operates a sailing school for kids and adults.
