boat building mecca

As you drive into the tiny town of Brooklin, Maine, the sign says “Boatbuilding Capital of the World.” After seeing the projects underway at the Brooklin Boat Yard in this walkabout video, you’ll see there’s some truth behind the town’s slightly irreverent tagline. From traditional wood construction to cutting edge composites and even classic restorations, it’s a fascinating look behind the doors of one of the world’s premier boat yards.
