We are proud to partner with the 
Hudson River Maritime Museum
in holding our annual antique and classic boat show. 
All boats welcome!


Held annually the third weekend in August, this year's official show date is August 18. Boats are welcome to arrive on Friday, August 17 and stay through Sunday, August 19.

This judging optional show features power, sail, and hand-powered classic watercraft from a wide variety of original manufacturers such as Chris-Craft, Century, Hacker Craft, Fay & Bowen, Lyman, Thompson, Correct Craft, and others, as well as examples of homemade vessels.  The boats represent different styles of craft and various stages of preservation/restoration – from unrestored “project” boats, to award-winning show boats.  Owners are typically on hand to discuss the history and restoration of their boats, as well as to give their advice on a variety of topics to those who are interested in this fast-growing hobby.  In addition to the display of boats, ACBS membership and general boating information will be available at the show, and souvenir items including hats and shirts will be available for purchase.
