Rhode Island's maritime history is amongst the richest in the country and possibly the world. Home to Nathaniel Herreshoff, father and innovator of many of the finest yacht designs in history, the Americas Cup Hall of Fame, The Yachting Museum, The International Yacht Restoration School and the nearby Mystic Seaport. Each of these museums and schools house examples of the fine craftsmanship of Rhode Island's earliest shipwrights, all of which contributes to making Rhode Island the "boat building capital of the world".
