Steam Engines

Herreshoff Marine Museum

Although best known as a designer and builder of yachts, Nathanael Herreshoff was a mechanical engineer.  He was the first to design light steam engines and also fast torpedo boats for the US Navy.  Some if his engines are also displayed at the museum, alongside his yachts.
