State vocational school for boat builders and sailmakers

The vocational school in Lübeck provides information in Hall B2 ground floor on all aspects of the vocational training for boat builders and sail makers. Teachers and students are available for discussions.
Boatbuilding apprentices specialising in construction, outfitting and conversion demonstrate practical skills such as the laying of deckboard on a deck model, the planing of oars for a youth cruising cutter, the processing of planks and ship hulls, and the transfer of frames for construction work. Boatbuilding trainees specialising in technology will demonstrate maintenance works on a marine diesel engine. Aspiring sailmakers will present work on professional special-purpose sewing machines, manufacture small textile products and demonstrate knots and splicing. Visitors will also have the opportunity to try their hands at several of these activities.

Special show of the DBSV
