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 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.
