The Landing School, located in Arundel, Maine, has as the foundation for their curriculum these four concepts: Imagine, Design, Build, Operate.

The Antique and Classic Boat Society appreciates having this school as an Associate Member.  They first joined ACBS in 1995.

Wander through The Landing School’s website and you’ll want to go on an actual tour or even become a student.  The main programs they offer are:

  • YACHT DESIGN – “Yacht Design is all about creating a dynamic, artful watercraft with nothing more than your imagination, technical skills, and a computer.”
  • WOODEN BOAT BUILDING – “The Wooden Boat Building program is in many ways the Renaissance program of the school, combining elements of each program. Students rely upon and interpret plans created by yacht designers, work with wood and composite materials to build boats and install marine electrical and propulsion systems.”
  • COMPOSITE BOAT BUILDING – “The Composite Boat Building program is a highly structured curriculum that prepares individuals for the real world demands of manufacturing composite material and products for the marine industry.”
  • MARINE SYSTEMS – “Professionals in Marine Systems keep every kind of seafaring vessel running, from an outboard powered skiff to a nuclear submarine.”

The Landing School is accredited to offer both a Diploma (8 months in one of the four programs) or an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Marine Industry Technology (2 years, 82 credit hours).

The Landing School also offers short vocational and avocational short-courses in marine industry topics. These courses range from several days to many weeks and are taught by Landing School faculty and industry experts.
