The Pioneer Skills Centre is a boatyard established to provide young people with the opportunity to learn boat building and restoration skills. Work is focused on the restoration of historic sailing vessels.
Boatyard tuition and services are implemented and supervised by two highly qualified and experienced shipwrights, both of whom have a wealth of experience and an established track record. This includes the restoration of the 1st Class Essex Smack 'Pioneer', for which the skills centre also offers maintenance and an operational base.
The centre is equipped with a purpose built workshop, water frontage and hard standing areas.
During 2008, it is intended that a dry dock facility will also be made available.
