The Sail Loft is located on the second floor of our Wagner Education Center, designed by renowned architect Olson Kundig, features exposed wooden beams, textured wooden walls, cork flooring, and a magnetic metal wall. This modern space’s neutral color pallet allows the personal decorative style of anyone to shine. Its large windows filter plenty of light into the space which reflects off the natural wooden walls. Our sail loft can be a private and intimate or open and fluid space. Customize the space to your needs by rolling the sail loft’s adjustable wooden wall to the side and open the doors, giving your guests the chance to move freely through the second floor with access to our exhibits and views of the boatshop. Choose the dynamic design of our sail loft to accommodate your next event!
