The Roanoke Island Maritime Museum located in the George Washington Creef boathouse in Manteo is a working boat shop offering a look at local maritime heritage through displayed watercraft, exhibits, restoration projects, and traditional skills workshops.

Several small watercraft are on display including a 1883 shad boat, a clipper yawl boat and a 1960’s hydroplane that locals once used in racing.

There is just something very special about a wooden boat, don’t you agree?

If you are in the area for the last Friday and Saturday of October, the 5th Annual Wooden Boat Show will feature boats on the water and on the grounds of the museum.
