The New Zealand Traditional Boat Building School is a volunteer run charitable trust started in 2005 that has been providing Education, Skills development, Personal growth, Youth development, Community support and plays an active part in maintaining New Zealand's valuable maritime history.

Due to increasing costs, Covid 19 and a lack of available support from other funding sources this year we are struggling to survive. We need in excess of $20,000 opex per year just to keep the doors open and the lights on. Although we charge for our courses and all of our day to day operations are provided by volunteers we simply can't generate enough income from this to survive.

Help us to continue the good work we do in the community each year.

Thank you for repairing my boat. I am very impressed with the professionalism, skills and quality of the work you do. I really appreciate the support. The repair you did on my wooden frostbite is now the strongest and best part of the boat.
