Located by Portsoy’s Old Harbour, you’ll find the Portsoy Boatshed, a purpose built, well equipped workshop with the machines and traditional tools to build boats. Home to a qualified boat builder and team of enthusiastic volunteers with a passion for wooden boat building, you are certain of a friendly welcome and a hearty chat as they share their skills, knowledge and learnings.
If you would like to build your own boat, you can! No previous experience or skills are required, we’ll help you learn, or simply provide you with the facilities you need to carry on under your own steam. Afterwards, see if your boat sails and take it home with you to keep and enjoy.
