About Us


Sales generated at the Wooden Boat Chandlery support the Northwest Maritime Center, located in the maritime mecca of Port Townsend, Washington, USA. Our mission is to engage and educate people of all generations in traditional and contemporary maritime life, in a spirit of adventure and discovery.

Your purchases enable us to provide powerful maritime experiences: boat building workshops, maritime education for schools region-wide, US Sailing certified instruction for youth and adults, and our on-the-water adventures: Race to Alaska and SEVENTY48

We are also the home of the Wooden Boat Foundation and the world-famous Wooden Boat Festival, over 40 years strong, that brings together 30,000 visitors and more than 200 boaters in a celebration of our maritime heritage. Thank you for supporting our work through your purchases!
