Shopping Season may include every day of the year.  Or it might come in bursts of needs and wants.

Here are some ideas that will help you and will also help ACBS.

Shopping for nautical parts for those winter restorations and maintenance tasks?

First, look in the CLASSIC BOAT SUPPLIERS.  It’s under the Resources tab in this website’s menu.  Narrow your search by selecting a catagory:
                                 Accessories, Builder, Dealer, Education, Engine, Hardware, Instruments, Insurance, Restorer, Riva Boats, Supplies, Trailers

Shopping for a new vintage boat?

Beyond the Dealers listed in the Classic Boat Suppliers, look in our own ACBS CLASSIFIEDS for your next boat.  Prices range from “just-come-and-get-it” to over $100,000.  So many are ready to go at a very reasonable price.  When you’re looking for yourself or helping others get into a vintage boat, review the ideas found in this “Cost of Ownership is Less Than You Think“.

Check out the STORE link in the website menu.

 The STORE is like going to the mall! 

  • You may choose to order products from ACBS such as the doormat, insulated tumblers, insulated coolers, burgees, and t-shirts that are ON SALE.
    New items ON SALE at the ACBS STORE include:  


  • Or shop for clothing from TipTops which can be embroidered or screen printed with your own chapter’s logo or the ACBS logo.

Next stop in your shopping might be Amazon.  Start here:  

If you shop through Amazon, you can shop at and the Amazon Foundation will donate .5% of the price of qualifying purchases to the ACBS.

The AmazonSmile link now appears on the right-hand sidebar of many pages on this website.  You may start there anytime you go to Amazon, or set ANTIQUE AND CLASSIC BOAT SOCIETY INC as your default Smile recipient of the .5% of your purchases.  There is NO additional charge to you!

Go on a shopping trip through this ACBS website.  Explore all of the menu tabs.  See what information you can find.
