We are a passionate organization with deep community connections to local working waterfront traditions past and present. The Gig Harbor BoatShop is tasked with perpetuating and interpreting the Eddon Boatyard and the local working waterfront by delivering programs that focus on boat restoration and repair, boatbuilding, and boat use. Join us and help provide community access to hands-on working waterfront activities and an intact historic boatyard space thats been characterized as a remarkable treasure. Become a member, volunteer in the shops, visit the boatyard, or engage in a BoatShop skills program - its your community boatyard.
The boatyard facility hosts working, hands-on activities for youth and adults like the Family Boat Building Program, where participant families or groups build a skiff in a weekend. To get the community and our guests on the water the BoatShop provides the seasonal Gig Harbor BoatShop Boat Livery Service using classic small boats restored by the BoatShop's Community Boat Restoration Program. Gig Harbor BoatShop is inspired by maritime traditions past and present, and is dedicated to seeing local working waterfront traditions evolve going forward. Drop in and rent a classic boat, saw a board, or just soak up historic Gig Harbor.
