Experience the handcrafted built of a wooden boat. Enjoy the smooth ride of a seafaring flyfisher. Or maybe you’ve got a boat that has served you well that you’d like to see someone else enjoy. Welcome to The Landing School Boatshop! Here you’ll find pristine student-built boats made of wood, composite material or a combination of the two. You may also find donated boats from time to time. Would you like to take a look at our boats in person? Stop by the school! We’ve got many on display so you can experience the allure of hand-built boats for yourself. If you're interested in buying or donating a boat, please contact Barry Acker.

Joel White Pea Pod
Alden 21 Sloop 2006 (Used)
Alden designed 2006 built by the Harry Bryan Yard, Nova Scotia. Carvel planked and beautiful gaff rigged classic boat. LOA: 21' 7", Beam: 8', Draft: 3' 7"
Whitehall Tyee 14 (Used)
The Tyee 14 is renowned for the way it carries a load and
comfortably handles wind, waves, and choppy tidal waters. It has a fullness of beam which extends along the hull, and the transom is three inches broader than a Whitehall Spirit® 14. The Tyee 14 has an "untucked" transom rather than the "wineglass" shape of a Whitehall. The fuller hull shape adds buoyancy aft, making the boat suitable for carrying a heavier load and, if desired, a small outboard. Click here for more.
