OUR MISSION

The Buffalo Maritime Center (BMC) is a non-profit, intergenerational, community-learning center that seeks to promote traditional hand skills and a craftsman-like attitude while advancing knowledge and appreciation of our Western New York maritime heritage. The high standards of craftsmanship intrinsic to the work of boat building form the basis of educational programs that encourage self-discipline, self-sufficiency, and the pride of performing meaningful work with our hands.
