The Philadelphia Chapter was formed in 1998 and is a 501c3 nonprofit charitable organization. In the fall of 2018, the Philadelphia Chapter and the Barnegat Bay Chapters merged and selected a new name, Mid-Atlantic Chapter.
We’re a varied bunch of people who have a common love of antique and classic boats including the “woodies” and classic fiberglass boats of the past and the contemporary classic “woodies” . We believe that roaring around in a beautifully restored mahogany or fiberglass runabout is among the greatest pleasures of life. The Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the ACBS sponsors a variety of boat shows throughout the boating season, organizes member get-togethers so fellow boat owners and prospective boat owners can share experiences, and generally provides a comfortable environment in which to explore these boats.
We have informal dinner meetings throughout the year and come together several times to show our boats to the general public
