The Wooden Boat Building program is in many ways the Renaissance program of the school, combining elements of each program. Students rely upon and interpret plans created by yacht designers, work with wood and composite materials to build boats and install marine electrical and propulsion systems. It is a powerful stand-alone diploma program, and a springboard from which to explore in depth other program areas offered at the School.


The boats students build vary from year to year to ensure students build a boat or boats that match the student cohort and interest, and the skills needed in the industry. Typically, students might expect to develop their fundamental boat building skills by building a small skiff in the fall semester, and then go on to further develop those skills by building a more complex mid-sized powerboat or sailboat in the spring semester. You will work in boat-specific groups and develop the skills, techniques, and artistry that comprise wooden boat building while becoming a high performing individual and team member.
