1897 HERRESHOFF Triple Expansion Steam Yacht Engine
Only a few examples of Herreshoff engines are know to exist. These impressive and elegant engines powered vessels owned by the Vanderbilt, Dupont and J.P. Morgan families, amongst others as well as the Torpedo boats of the US Navy.
A superb example, this engine was custom built for the Steam Yacht NINA, for John Jacob Astor VI. It represents the pinnacle of American marine steam engine design and the internationally recognised maker Natheriel Herreshoff.
