Since 1992, we have been preserving boat building traditions on the banks of the Huon River.
The Wooden Boat Centre Tasmania has three boatbuilding workshops and visitors' centre, with the largest workshop being able to accommodate the construction of vessels to nearly 40ft. We offer anyone from novices to skilled boat builders the opportunity to build anything from wooden oars, to dinghies to 25ft pocket cruising boats. We also welcome restoration projects.
On site we have a library with an extensive selection of classic title books and periodicals that cover timber, design, boatbuilding, maritime history and related literature.
