The Boleh Project
“Helping young people now and in the future”
Boleh, a historic junk-yacht of unique design, is currently being restored in Portsmouth and turned into the perfect vessel for providing inspirational training to young people facing challenge in their lives.
Boleh was built in Singapore in 1949 and sailed to the UK. Boleh means “can do” in Malay and it is this “can do” philosophy, which drives the project to restore Boleh and put her to work training and inspiring young people.
Through the restoration of this project, the Boleh Trust are supporting young people by:
- Enabling apprentices to gain practical experience in conservation and shipwright skills
- Supporting young people to discover the best in themselves through skills and sail training
