About Rescue Wooden Boats

We are passionate about conserving maritime heritage. We restore examples of working wooden boats, tell their stories - and those of the last generation of seafaring communities to use them - through film and photos, show the crafts and skills used, and actively involve people - especially young people - in learning about all this. 

Find out more on our website, visit our Maritime Heritage Centre in Norfolk, NR23 1QF, and get involved with what we do!

We have started fundraising to restore important 1935 whelker, Bessie.  Find out more about her story, and her progress, here.
