"The reason I chose to come to Falmouth is because I like Cornwall, I wanted to be able to go surfing and it's got a good vibe down here, it's good fun."
Falmouth Marine School has a long history of providing boat building courses.
This is the only place in Cornwall where you will gain specialist training with access to dedicated workshops.
Whether your dreams lie in boat building or repairing, becoming part of a professional crew, or a marine surveyor these courses will get you on the right pathway.
While using the latest technical processes you will be taught in our dedicated woodworking workshops and in our specialist fibre reinforced plastics workshop.
Our specialist industry experienced lecturers believe the best way to learn boat building techniques is to undertake real hands-on experience.
The majority of our boat building programmes and assessments are carried out in a practical way.
Our boat building courses are designed to equip you with practical skills, knowledge and the understanding required becoming successful in your chosen career.
Our students were an integral part of the creation of replica Viking boats for a new exhibition at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall 'Viking Voyagers'. For more information, click here.
