Since its founding in 1975 on the shores of Lake George, New York, The Antique and Classic Boat Society, Inc. (ACBS) has grown into the largest society in the world dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of classic boats. We embrace all styles of classic wood, fiberglass and metal boats.
ACBS is a membership-based association dedicated to connecting people who love and enjoy classic boats with events, information, expertise, and other people who share the passion. We serve our members and chapters, internationally, by providing information, education, and resources designed to promote, sustain and grow the hobby, professions, community, and lifestyle surrounding the safe enjoyment of classic boats and boating.
ACBS also provides scholarships to worthy students seeking careers in the field of antique marine restoration and preservation.
Our regular activities include boat shows, restoration symposiums, and quarterly meetings in some of the most beautiful boating areas in North America.
