About our wonderful town.

Fun things to do in the area How to get here.

Brooklin, Maine is 93 miles North East of Portland and a mere 183 miles from Boston. Some people think we are in the middle of nowhere, but we, here, tend to think we are in the middle of something special. Brooklin has a population of around 800 souls and is known for being the wooden boat building capital of the world. We are in the Downeast /Acadia Region of Maine. It is said that the term “down east” derived from sailing days when ships from Boston sailed down wind in an easterly direction. We are home of Wooden Boat School Wooden Boat Magazine. We invite you to enjoy the Downeast pace of our small town.
