ACBS is the premier organization to join for people who want to learn, participate and enjoy the fun of classic & vintage boating.

For over 40 years, we have been an international family oriented, non-profit (501-c-3) boating society that is devoted to the preservation, restoration and education about classic boating. Ownership of a classic boat is not a requirement for membership.
