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 Update – COVID-19

 

During this time of uncertainty regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus), the shop is closed to visitors of any kind. 

We rely on our community for support and in times like this we hope our community can rely on us for the same.  To that end, if any of you out there are in need and have nobody to call for help please reach out to us and we will do whatever we can…
PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE IF YOU ARE IN NEED.  

I (Graham) can be reached at gmckay@lowellsboatshop.com, Dorothy can be reached at dorothy@lowellsboatshop.com, or any of us at the main office info@lowellsboatshop.com

 

Going forward we will continue to monitor guidelines and do whatever we can to keep our volunteers, employees, and community safe. Our hearts go out to those who are sick or quarantined and to the small businesses that are suffering. We will go out of our way to support those local small businesses.

 

We will update you with the above options and when the shop will reopen for outside activities once this threat abates.

ROLLING ADMISSION (sign up at any point during the class season at a prorated rate)

Looking for something to supplement the online/hybrid learning models that have become this year’s “back to school”? Lowell’s Boat Shop is offering six mini-classes that incorporate STEAM learning objectives through place-based, hands-on education. Classes will be held outdoors whenever possible, and will be limited to small groups of 8. Kids will have the opportunity to row our Banks dories, and will learn about safety on the water in addition to developing skills and knowledge in math, history, science, engineering and the arts.

Two classes will be offered each day – 9:00-12:00 and 12:30-3:30 (Students enrolled for both classes can stay and have their lunch at LBS)
Ages: 10-13 (some flexibility – please call); limit 8 per class
$175 LBS Members; $190 Nonmembers (per class)
