Please think of our website as an open invitation to come join us as we celebrate 33 years of offering numerous courses designed around the exciting world of wooden boats.
Located on the beautiful coast of Maine, in the small community of Brooklin, WoodenBoat School is a unique meeting place where people of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels can gather to meet, live, and work among others who share similar interests. It’s an easy place to settle in, relax, and immerse yourself in fine craftsmanship. You’ll make new friends, live in comfortable accommodations, get well fed, work in safe, well-equipped shops, have access to a spectacular fleet of boats on our waterfront, and learn new skills. Our students are down-to-earth, caring, talented, striving for some level of self-improvement—just good people right to the core. And many of them return time and time again and share with us how enriching their experiences are at our school.
Our classes are small and intimate, which allows each individual the opportunity to receive plenty of personalized attention from their instructor. From the moment you arrive on our 64-acre campus, our dedicated staff and faculty are more than willing to share their expertise with all who are interested. It is a unique opportunity to be stimulated and increase your understanding of boats and your ability to build, maintain, use, and enjoy them to the fullest.
As you browse through our website, we’re quite certain you’ll find something that piques your interest. There’s lots of information packed into this website, so take your time, read carefully, and, if you have questions or would like to register for a course, contact us and we’ll be glad to speak with you. Know that we’re committed to offering you an experience that you’ll remember and benefit from for a long, long time. We await your arrival!
