Join us for the annual Classic Workboat Show! May 16th-17th, 2020
Northwest Seaport is the museum of our region's workboats. Every year we gather a group of visiting tugboats, fishing boats, and emergency response vessels at Lake Union Park for you to come see, step aboard, and experience. Some are retired classics and others are still on the job, moving cargo, keeping our waterways safe, or bringing home the catch.
Our featured vessel is the Tordenskjold, a working boat finding a new life after 100 years spent fishing the northwest seas, alongside of many other fishing vessels like those from the Deadliest Catch. (This boat was featured in Wooden Boat Magazine, and it’s your chance to tour this boat in person.)
Come on down and see these boats up close, tour the engine rooms, talk with captains and crew, and get a good dose of maritime history here in Seattle. There will also be a beer garden at the Historic Ships Wharf. Free and open to everyone. Produced by Northwest Seaport and sponsored by leaders of our working waterfront.
