WoodenBoat magazine introduced Family BoatBuilding at the WoodenBoat Show in 1998 in St. Michaels, MD. That year 60 families built their own boats in two days and launched them on the third day to thunderous applause from hundreds of onlookers.



Choose Your Boat

Whether you want to row, sail, or power on the water, there are boat kits available to construct craft that are sturdy, attractive, and easy to assemble.

There is no one kind of Family BoatBuilding boat. Different Family BoatBuilding events worldwide will be using different boat models—some constructed out of pre-cut kits and some built using design plans. Below are some examples of the boat models used successfully at Family BoatBuilding events held over the past several years.
