Great Lakes Boat Building School
GLBBS is the only state-recognized boat building school in the Mid-West. The first year, 9-month program concentrates on classic woodworking, and traditional and composite wooden boat building. The second year is devoted to yacht joinery, composite wooden boats, and marine systems. The instructors have extensive background as professional boat builders in teaching the skills needed for new construction in traditional and modern wooden boat building, and the repair and restoration of wooden craft. The school is partnered with North Central Michigan College to offer the only accredited associate degree in wooden boat building in Michigan. Its classes are held in a state-of-the-art, 12,000 sq. ft. waterfront facility, located in the Les Cheneaux Islands area of northern Lake Huron.
There is also a broad selection of classes and build-your-own-boat workshops throughout the summer.
