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 enjoyment of classic boats. We embrace all styles of classic wood, fiberglass and metal boats.

ACBS is the organization members count on to connect with resources essential to their passion for classic boats. The ACBS website, email newsletters, and Rudder magazine provide relevant news coverage of our community – local chapters, classic boats, shops, shows, and other events. ACBS membership means valuable discounts on classic boat insurance, services, rental cars, and more. It means access to exclusive how-to videos, workshops, and a fully searchable database of ACBS members, boats, and engines. Perhaps most valuable of all, membership means a connection to a community of people who share your passion for classic boats.
