Kings of Pin Mill, The Boatbuilding Years – IMT Autumn Talks

2nd November 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Kings of Pin Mill, The Boatbuilding Years – Sarah Curtis

There has been a boatyard on the same site at Pin Mill since George Garrard set it up in 1850. Harry King, one of George’s apprentices, took over the yard in 1898 and turned it into the yacht building centre it became famous for, all over the world.

This talk will cover a brief history of the yard but will mainly focus on the most productive yacht building years from the 1930s.

This talk will start at 7:30pm with entry from 7pm at the University of Suffolk Waterfront Building.

Car parking is available in the nearby Duke St car park or at IBC pay car parks at St Peters Wharf or Fore St Baths.

The cost for attending a talk is £3.50 for members and £4.50 for guests; included are free tea, coffee and biscuits after the talk.

We no longer require pre-booking of tickets for our talks and take both card and cash payments.
