Maine Museum to Hold Skiff-Building Class

The Maine Maritime Museum will be hosting a skiff-building workshop over February school vacation week.

A class will be conducted in the Museum’s boatshop, where participants will build a 12-foot skiff in just 2 days.

All parts are pre-cut in the boatshop and will be assembled by each group over the 2-day workshop.

Each group should have at least 2 participants, with the youngest member at least 8. Each group will completely build a boat, which comes with a pair of 6-foot oars. Painting and varnishing is not possible due to the length of the class. Course fee includes cost of all building materials.


  • Members $770
  • Non members $800
