About The Center for Wooden Boats
What You Can Do Here
Come to CWB for hands-on maritime experiences using our fleet of historic wooden boats. You can visit us in Seattle or on Camano Island. Our livery (our fleet of boats for rent) operates year-round renting sail and rowboats to the public. We also offer many classes in sailing and other skills for adults and youth as well as one-on-one sailing lessons. Many events happen at The Center for Wooden Boats and you are invited to explore our docks every day of the year.
What We Believe
We believe in celebrating our rich, vital and varied small craft heritage by preserving and sharing both the artifacts and the time-tested maritime skills of sailing, paddling, boatbuilding and boat maintenance.
To provide a gathering place where maritime history comes alive through direct experience and our small craft heritage is enjoyed, preserved, and passed along to future generations
