Highliners: Boats of the Century

The Center for Wooden Boats presents the story of the historic power-schooners of Seattle’s longline fleet, many of which are 100 years old and still actively fishing. Many of these unique vessels were built here, on the shores of Puget Sound, as Seattle was coming into its own as a city. Although less than 20 remain from a fleet that numbered over 150 in its heyday, the vessels and fishermen are still a vital part of Seattle’s maritime economy. Come experience the whole story at The Center for Wooden Boats.
