Boats


From Optis to Thunderbirds and longboats, we have a diverse fleet of vessels used for teaching, renting, and day sailing. In addition to our permanent fleet, we often receive boats by donation that we offer for sale; proceeds from these purchases go straight back into programs at the NWMC.

“They’re not just boats; they’re opportunities to learn.”
—Ace Spragg, Program Director

From free boat rides to small boat rentals, sailing classes and more, there are lots of ways to get out on the water this summer.
