Sponsor a boat

Become a Sponsor

Sponsored projects are ones where students build a boat to order for a project sponsor. The sponsor pays a fee that covers some of the project costs and then owns the boat when the students are done. These are generally long term projects, taking 6 months or more, with the boat being built using traditional wooden boat building techniques. Join our growing list of sponsors of traditional wooden boats finely crafted by local high school students.
