The Boathouse has a longstanding history with involvement in community events.  While it is now owned privately by members it still holds a place as a community hall for the people of Nelson. With the support of the member’s infrastructure The Boathouse is able to support many local groups in their endeavours.

Many groups have fundraised for their cause with the support of The Boathouse. Please contact the office for more information on a Community Hire at The Boathouse.
