WHAT IS APRENDIZTEGI? 

 

Last year Albaola launched “Aprendiztegi The Lance Lee International Boatbuilding School”, a new and innovative school dedicated to the training and transmission of the traditional boatbuilding. It is a three-year program of working with ships that have historical value. Aprendiztegi offers integral training based on putting skills into practice. At present, together with some local students, we have students from Spain, France, Belgium, Italy, Greece and America.
