To provide a gathering place where maritime history comes alive
through direct experience and our small craft heritage is enjoyed,
preserved, and passed along to future generations.

-Mission Statement, The Center for Wooden Boats

CWB is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to preserving maritime heritage for future generations. We believe that it is essential to preserve the skills and stories associated with wooden small craft by teaching workshops, organizing events and regattas, and igniting a passion for wood and water in young and old alike. We thrive because of the support of a dedicated group of volunteers, members, and staff who believe that our mission is important. We also stay afloat with the help of generous donors and other supporters of The Center for Wooden Boats.
