MARILEE Film Release
After three terrific screenings in Maine and Rhode Island, I am pleased to announce the release of the documentary, NY40 MARILEE: Restoration of a Herreshoff Classic.
Over the course of two years, I followed the meticulous restoration of MARILEE, the Herreshoff classic New York 40 racing yacht, at French & Webb in Belfast, Maine. Along with documenting her restoration and racing program, we dove into the Hart Nautical Collections at the MIT Museum to explore her extraordinary history and place in the legacy of Captain Nat Herreshoff and the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company. The result is an amazing story and stunning imagery that we are thrilled to release to the world.
This film has been made available to the public due to the generosity of the current custodian of MARILEE. We are pleased to be able to share this story of the genius yacht designer and the preservation of a piece of American history.
