Description

At the completion of this project the facility was gifted to the City of Albany , in due recognition of the area's rich maritime history, and relocated to the foreshore of picturesque Princess Royal Harbour.

It has since been managed by the Albany Maritime Foundation, which has driven a number of successful wooden boat construction and restoration projects within its walls. Plus, Shed space has been leased to private individuals, for their own wooden boat activities, the building has been home to schools delivering maritime-based educational programs and is now the Foundation is developing the Shed into a tourist destination.
