Hornet, Bambino and Belisarius

Bristol, RI

These three boats were all designed and built by the Herreshoff Manufacturing Co, in Bristol, RI.  Both the Bambino and the Belisarius were designed by Nathaneal G Herreshoff, a navel architect and steam engineer who along with his brother John Brown Herreshoff founded the company.  The Belisarius  was the last boat designed by Nathaneal in 1935.  His eldest son, A. Sidney DeWolf Herreshoff designed the Hornet in 1931.
