Using and supporting wooden boat heritage and craft in Tasmania.

The Wooden Boat Guild of Tasmania Incorporated was formed in 1994 by a group wishing to keep and support wooden boat heritage and craft in Tasmania. Members of the Wooden Boat Guild of Tasmania see their role as being one of nurturing and educating in the art of wooden boat building and restoration. Tasmania is home to one of the world's finest boat building timbers, Huon Pine, so it's not surprising that it is also home to some of Australia's finest wooden boats. As well as being the destination for one of the world's premier off-shore yacht races, Hobart is also host to Australia's premier wooden boat festival.
