A coastal culture exhibition in the former Brekneholmen boat builder's yard.
Borhaug is a village on the seashore at westernLista, about 2 km from Lista lighthouse. 150 years ago, boat builders started building Lister Boats for local pilots and fishermen in the harbor. Later bigger Lister Skoites were built for freight traffic and fishery. The boat types from Lista became legendary, and wrote fishery history all along the Norwegian coast.
Go on board an old Liste skoite and get to know her story. Explore Lista’s proud boat building traditions. Learn about the old freighters. See the cool engines. An exhibition of items found in ship wrecks tells the story of the dangerous Lista shores. Visit “Uggerbyskipet”, built in Norway in 1810, wrecked in Denmark in 1854.
