BUY A BOAT & SUPPORT MARITIME HERITAGE The Center for Wooden Boats frequently accepts boat donations. These boats are sometimes added to our collection of classic wooden boats, but more often they are sold to help us support our hands-on, on-the-water programs for kids of all ages. You can be a part of this tradition by donating or purchasing a boat at CWB!

Boats for sale are stored at our Seattle location, either on the docks or in off-site storage. Boats on our docks may be viewed anytime during CWB open hours. Simply ask for the vessel at our Front Desk to receive the keys. Boats that are located at off-site storage may be viewed by appointment.

PLEASE NOTE: We can not guarantee the accuracy of the descriptions / specifications, as often we rely on information from others. We are not responsible for listing errors. Buyers are asked to independently verify all descriptions / specifications prior to purchase.
