Each regional network has been developed around a range of existing skills, facilities and vessels. A number of exciting projects are currently under way in each area featuring training in traditional skills and techniques, conservation and repair of historic vessels or the regeneration of disused docks and maritime services. 

This page gives more information about the major projects in the Solent area, which form the core of the Shipshape Network in this region.

Please contact us if you would like your project to be included.
