Ahoy There !

Welcome to the new Shelburne Longboat Society Website. We will be making lots of changes in the weeks to come, so stay tuned. In the meantime, please row responsibly.


The Shelburne Longboat Society was created to carry on the legacy and success of the Shelburne Loyalist Landings celebrations of 2008. The Society was incorporated under the Nova Scotia Registry of Joint Stock Companies on 7th April 2008 as a non-profit volunteer organization.

The Shelburne Longboat Society has two main objectives –

  1. The care, maintenance, management, ownership and use of the two replica 17th century wooden longboats.
  2. To promote the town of Shelburne and Shelburne County’s wooden boat building heritage.

The boats have been a main feature in many events around the Maritimes. For more information check out the Events Page.
