The Boat Building Academy

Providing ‘hands-on’ learning.


The Boat Building Academy provides full-time, highly practical skills training with the emphasis on ‘hands-on’ learning. The school was founded in 1997 by Commander Tim Gedge and was recently granted charity status in January 2020.

Our flagship 40-week Boat Building course teaches men and women to build boats to the highest professional standards across a range of construction types. The course also allows for a handful of students to build their own boats as part of their training.

People come from all over the world to join the course - meaning no two courses are alike. There is no fixed skill requirement: all we ask for is enthusiasm, motivation and dedication to the training.

By the end of 40 weeks, each student leaves the Academy with a Level 3 City & Guilds qualification and the key skills needed to work in the marine industries – ready for whatever path they take next.
