The NC Coastal & Piedmont Chapter was founded in 2005, and provides membership for a large portion of North Carolina Coast & Piedmont region. 

NC Coastal & Piedmont Chapter has members from as far west as Winston Salem, NC and east to the NC coast, Duck, NC to the north and Southport, NC to the south.

This ACBS Chapter holds a boat show in late May every year.  We display boats in New Bern, NC on the beautiful Neuse River.  Annual outings are held on Jordan Lake and Lake Gaston each summer.

The Chapter also holds several technical sessions each year where we share knowledge of members’ boat restoration skills.  View more about NC Coastal & Piedmont Chapter at http://www.vintageboat.org/
