The Museum Turns 50
Bristol, Rhode Island, USA – The Herreshoff Marine Museum is thrilled to announce its Golden Jubilee year— the 50th anniversary of its founding. Throughout 2021, the Museum will celebrate five decades of preservation and interpretation of the world-renowned Herreshoff Manufacturing Company and its remarkable founders, brothers John and Nathanael (“Captain Nat”) Herreshoff. The Museum will commemorate this yearlong anniversary with programming and special events engaging Herreshoff boat owners around the world, America’s Cup veterans and enthusiasts, and the maritime heritage community at large.
Join the Celebration!
With over 2,000 boats built, and many still sailing (or motoring) today, so many of us have stories to tell about our experiences aboard Herreshoff boats and with Herreshoff people. Telling us your story is one way to participate in this year-long party, but we’ve also planned a great mix of events (both virtual and in-person), lectures and sailing events to get you in the Jubilee mood. Scroll down to see other ways to join the fun!

Nantucket Vineyard was the first arm of our business opening in the early 1980’s as a small project of the Long Family. After a few years, Winery employees ended up falling in love with the wine and each other, and voila! – Cisco Brewers was born on the Hudson’s stovetop in 1995. Whispers of a brewery floated on the Nantucket wind, catching the ear of a few people, including a Mr. Harman. Using the previously tested and proven formula of starting a business from another business, Winery and Brewery employees enjoyed a few glasses / pints (respectively) together and hatched the idea for Triple Eight Distillery in 2000. All three businesses are constantly evolving, and we now produce a wide variety of world-class wines, beers, and spirits. Come out and enjoy our Nantucket haven- just prepare yourself in case your mind blows up from all the awesomeness.
