Buying a Boat Never Felt So Good!

Buying a Boat Never Felt So Good!

With winter upon us, it is time to keep warm by dreaming of piloting your own boat through warm summer waters. Make that dream a reality this boating season by buying a Compass Project student-built boat. Check out what we have in stock and the projects that will be ready for purchase come summer!

Man with boat.
Founded in 2002, Compass Project has been serving the youth of Maine for more than a decade. Each of our kids is charting his/her own course through obstacles in school and life. Using boat building and on the water programs, we help young men and women develop academic and workplace skills, as well as self-confidence and pride. We hope our story will inspire you to get involved. Indeed, we believe Compass Project kids are truly inspirational!
