In Broadreach’s Caribbean Boat Building & Design program for middle school, high school or college students, teens will live aboard a 45-foot catamaran and explore the islands of the Caribbean while learning all about building boats from concept to construction. Learn how to design plans with CAD software, choose your materials, receive instructions on tool use while you build the frame, lay the planks, put the finishing touches on the exterior and cast off into the Caribbean sea in a boat built with your very own hands.
