In 1879, the brothers John and Nathanael Herreshoff set up the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company. From this partnership was born the legend of John "the Blind Genius" and Nat, " the Wizard of Bristol". For ten years, production consisted mainly of steamers of all types.
Then, Nat revolutionized the design of sailing ships in 1891 with Gloriana.
The owner of Gloriana, E.D. Morgan commissioned Nat to build Vigilant, the 1893 winning defender.
