What do sailing, warm breezes, and friendly people remind you of? No, not a weekend in the Caribbean -- The White Bear Boat Works!

Formerly Johson Boat Works, we here at the White Bear Boat Works know a lot about sailing. And guess what? We know even more about having fun!

That’s why the White Bear Boat Works is the place to go when you’re looking to sail away—even just for an afternoon.

Whether you are one of those cutting-edge, must-have-the-latest-gadget racers or simply want to relax in the sun, we have what you are looking for. New to sailing? With our lessons, friendly staff, and extensive selection of affordable, user-friendly boats, you’ll be on your way in no time.

We’re excited about sailing, and want you to be, too! That’s why we spend so much time making sailing fun and easy for everyone. In addition to new and used sailboats for every kind of person (or, we should say, sailor—we do have some folks who are known to bring their dog or cat as crew), we offer a 160 slip marina, sailing lessons, a retail “Ship’s Store” for scow, daysailer, and keelboat parts and accessories, and a full-service fiberglass repair facility, for those inevitable nicks and dings.

Need a hard-to-find part? Want to know what the thingy that sits on the plate on the floor of the boat is for? Looking for the best tabernacle? Just ask. We are happy to help.
