The Wooden Boat Guild of Tasmania is based in Hobart and most of its members live in southern Tasmania. The Guild has its meeting headquarters in Battery Point and its boats and major workshop at Prince of Wales Bay, not far from Hobart's current boat-building centre.
The meeting rooms are at the Mariners' Cottages, 42 Napoleon Street, Battery Point. We normally meet in the half of the cottage that is nearest the slipyards.
Battery Point is an area that has had boat-building at its core since Hobart was first settled by Europeans in the early 19th century. The cottages are believed to be the oldest remaining buildings on the site of the ship-building yards in Napoleon Street and the Guild is proud to call them home.
