Boatbuilding School Looking For New Home – Can You or Anyone You Know Help Out?
The New Zealand Traditional Boatbuilding School is on the lookout for new premises that will allow the delivery of an exciting new chapter of services to the broader wooden boating fraternity and other practically minded members of the public.
The Trustees have acknowledged that times are changing in the wooden and traditional boating world and are looking to bring a more inclusive program together in 2019 and beyond, while also maintaining the essential skills required to preserve traditional vessels.
To facilitate the new direction, more appropriate premises are being sought with workshop space of at least 150m2 and ideally reasonable facilities to hold small lectures.
Perhaps someone in the broader community knows of a suitable space? This may even be part of a larger facility under utilised by the current tenant or owner.
Interested parties in the first instance should contact Colin Pawson at
