“The Landing” is a short stretch of the Kennebunk River where the School is located. It was once an internationally famous shipbuilding area and the home of more than 20 shipbuilding firms between 1766 and 1867. This rich history is reflected in the boats our students build today. The sound hulls and fair lines of the handcrafted vessels we build are proud examples of our maritime heritage and an important facet of what made America great.

The Landing School offers diplomas and degrees in modern yacht design, wood and composite boat building and marine systems technology. More >
