Established in 1793, Lowell’s Boat Shop is the oldest operating boat shop in America.
“A National Historic Landmark and working museum, Lowell’s is dedicated to preserving and perpetuating the art and craft of wooden boat building.”
Lowell’s Boat Shop is a working museum continuing to build the full line of Dories and Skiffs which the shop has been producing for more than two centuries. Time tested and built on tradition, Lowell boats are classic and elegant craft for those who want to own a piece of history. Call or email the shop to speak to a boatbuilder about your new Lowell Boat.
