From Optis to Thunderbirds to longboats, the Northwest Maritime Center has a diverse fleet of vessels used for chartering, teaching, racing, 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.

Get on the Water

From free boat rides to on-site small boat rentals, Team Longboat to Learn to Sail classes, there are lots of ways to get out on the water this summer at the Northwest Maritime Center!

Boat Rentals

Come get on the water and see Port Townsend—our Victorian Seaport—from the water! Mountains, water and a historic town—the views are spectacular. Starting Memorial Day Weekend and going through the Wooden Boat Festival in September, we will have small rowboats and sailboats available for rent from the NWMC lower deck.
