Since its founding in 1975, The Antique and Classic Boat Society, Inc. (ACBS) has grown into
the largest society in the world dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of classic boats.
We embrace all styles of classic wood, fiberglass and metal boats.
With 6,800 family memberships (approximately 11,500 individuals), ACBS connects people with
the common interest in classic boats to share fellowship, information, experiences and ideas.
Each year ACBS Chapters organize more than 100 classic boat shows, boating events, and
gatherings. In 2011, the first European Chapter was formed in Bordeaux, France. In 2023,
a small group of classic boaters is now starting a new chapter in ACBS history, forming the new Classic Boat Club Northern Europe - be excited to to learn more about this over the coming weeks and months.
A Tribute to real Values
The appreciation for quality, stylish design and authentic manufacturing are an attitude towards life. Just like the joy that comes from owning classic cars, acknowledging traditional craftsmanship, or collecting memorabilia from the past.
