The Best Boats You Can Build

November 2021 Update:
Chesapeake Light Craft 
Our Showroom and Classroom are Open!

  • Our newly-remodeled showroom is open, Mon-Fri 9am to 5pm!  

  • Both the showroom and phones remain closed on Saturdays. We look forward to resuming Saturday hours soon. 

  • Unvaccinated visitors must wear masks in our showroom and classroom areas. 

  • Amidst all the tumult, we had a full year of boatbuilding classes at CLC in 2021. The 2022 schedule will be announced on December 1st, 2021, so check back often! Please contact us if you have questions about classes. As the epidemic situation unfolds, our class sites will respond with appropriate safety precautions, including masks and reduced class sizes. 

  • We are experiencing high demand. Please note that SHIPPING TIMES HAVE INCREASED for some CLC kits. Most supplies and accessories are shipped very quickly. Call or email us for current availability. 
  • Some of our suppliers continue to see supply-chain delays. Trailers, in particular, are in the midst of a worldwide backlog.    
  • As of November 2021, ALL forms of shipping are under unprecedented strain. The causes are manifold and complex, and will be the subject of graduate dissertations for years to come. Our shipping partners are working with us to expedite all the shipments as fast as they can.
  • CLC's in-stock inventory remains healthy. Respirators are back in stock, too! 
  • We're a small business. Thank you for your patience, and for your patronage! Our staff and their families depend on it.
