The Landing School was founded in 1978 on the coast of Maine next door to historic Kennebunkport. This region of Maine is home to centuries of boat and shipbuilding, dating back to the 1600's. In fact, "The Landing" where ships were built is our namesake. That same pioneering spirit that fueled shipbuilding over 400 years ago also fueled our founders to revitalize boat building on "The Landing" by starting our school.
Like so many groundbreaking ideas that came to life in a garage or basement, The Landing School students built their first boat in a cow barn. They also cut down trees on the property to mill their own materials and slept in tents on the back of the property.
That can-do attitude, foundation of teamwork, and need to build by hand is the core of our school today. Our students don't sleep in tents or cut down trees anymore, but they hold true to the traditions of boat building while also keeping an eye fixed on the future.
Today, the school offers diplomas and associate degrees that mix artisan tradition with engineering innovation in four key areas:
- Wooden Boat Building
- Composite Boat Building
- Yacht Design
- Marine Systems
