Building Boats, Nurturing Lives, Helping Others
The Carpenter’s Boat Shop offers transformative apprenticeships in the art and craft of boatbuilding
Wherever our apprentices are coming from, wherever they may be headed, the Boat Shop provides a harbor to set anchor in for 9 months before setting sail on a new course in life.
Our high quality boats and other wood products are lovingly made using traditional woodworking tools and techniques. Your purchase directly supports our mission.
Your support gives apprentices the opportunity to seek a deeper self-awareness, a clearer vision for their life’s goals, and a stronger commitment in their service to others.
Come on by!
