About Us

IYRS is a world-class experiential school with a core education model dedicated to teaching highly technical and deeply craft-oriented career skills. IYRS currently has three accredited schools: School of Boatbuilding & Restoration, School of Marine Systems, and School of Composites Technology. The skills acquired in these programs are transferrable to other industries and applications.

Located in a coastal region with a history of forward thinking, innovation, and educational institutions, the school has not only become known for training fine craftsmen and technicians, but IYRS is a destination stop, enjoyed by the public. Its doors are open to all those who want to see how craftsmen train and how the history of making and building things has occurred. IYRS is home to an important array of projects—from the cutting edge to restoration projects, some accompanied by exhibits and tours.
