Shetland Boat Week 2020 - Saturday 1st August to Sunday 9th August

A family friendly event with something for everyone from the expert maritime enthusiast to those taking their first tentative trip out onto the water.

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.

The event is inspired by Shetland’s rich maritime heritage, aims to encourage and promote a passion for traditional Shetland boats, and a growing participation in keeping the sailing, boat building and other historic skills alive.​
