Shetland Boat Week

Shetland’s intimate relationship with the sea is the focus of a new celebration, Shetland Boat Week. It will take place between 7th and 13th August 2017.

Monday 7th to Sunday 13th August 2017

Many generations of Shetlanders have made their living on or around the sea and the links with maritime and related marine industries are as important today as they always have been. Shetland Boat Week will showcase this heritage and see how modern ships compare with those of a previous generation.

Shetland Boat Week would be a great reason to visit the islands in August; it’s a family-friendly event and there will be lots to see and do. A whole range of activities are planned during the week which will include demonstrations of traditional skills, talks, boat trips and tours of vessels and venues not normally open to the public.
