Oselvar Boat Yard

Builds boats and takes care of the ancient handicraft of building small, clinker built wooden boats.

The Oselvar Boatyard builds boats and takes care of the ancient handicraft of building small, clinker built wooden boats. Here young and old boat builders are working together; the young ones to learn the handicraft of building in the oselvar tradition from the older ones. The living tradition and knowledge of building the small oselvar boats in this way is more detailed and complete than for any other type of small, clinker built boats in Norway, perhaps even in Europe. That means that the boat builders are able to build a boat with a variety of characteristics making it perfectly fit for its purpose. Some hours each week visitors are welcome to visit the boat yard and talk to the boat builders, and to watch them working as well. The boatyard also has an exhibition on the first floor showing thousand years of building and using small boats. The boatyard offers guided tours in the exhibition for groups of visitors by appointment.
