Many generations of Shetlanders have made their living on or around the sea and the links with maritime and related marine industries are as important today as they always have been. Shetland Boat Week is an opportunity to showcase this heritage and see how modern ships compare with those of a previous generation.

This is a family friendly event which is inspired by Shetland’s rich maritime heritage, while also being inclusive of the more contemporary methods and materials.

A whole range of activities are planned during the week which will include demonstrations of traditional skills, talks, boat trips and tours of vessels and venues not normally open to the public. See the Shetland Boat Week Event Listings page for details of events, and how to book.

Community groups and maritime related groups or businesses are encouraged to take part in Shetland Boat Week by providing tours of their premises, delivering talks, slideshows or other events to share knowledge and experiences. Anyone who would like to submit an event for the second year should contact Emma Miller, event co-ordinator, on 01595 694688 or email emma@shetlandamenity.org.
