Open house at Mårtensson's Boatyard

Open house at Mårtensson's Boatyard


The three Mårtensson brothers built more than 1,000 archipelago-adapted hunting canoes, Blekinge boats, and motor launches between 1934 and 1985, all according to the clinker-built technique, which has been classified as a World Heritage technique since 2021.

During the summer of 2024, Mårtensson's boatyard is hosting open house events on Saturdays and Sundays as follows:

June 29-30, from 10:00 to 16:00
July 6-7, from 10:00 to 16:00
July 13, from 10:00 to 16:00
July 14, from 10:00 to 16:00
July 20-21, from 10:00 to 16:00
July 27-28, from 10:00 to 16:00
August 3-4, from 10:00 to 16:00

A knowledgeable guide will be present to share information about the tradition of wooden boat building on Hästholmen Island. Mårtensson's boatyard was designated as a historic landmark in 1997 and is now managed by the Mårtensson's Boatyard Foundation.

Visitors will have the opportunity to take a rowing trip in a traditional hunting canoe during their visit.
