The Antique & Classic Boat Society, Inc. (ACBS) is a membership organization dedicated to connecting people who enjoy classic boats.

Since its founding in 1975 on the shores of Lake George, NY, The Antique and Classic Boat Society, Inc. (ACBS) has grown into the largest society in the world dedicated to the enjoyment of classic boats. With more than 6,500 members and 53 chapters, we embrace all styles of classic wood, fiberglass and metal boats. Powered or non-powered, all are welcome.

Each year, ACBS chapters organize more than 100 antique boat shows, workshops, cruises, and social events throughout North America – truly something for everyone!

The ACBS website, email newsletters, and Rudder magazine provide relevant news of our chapters, classic boats, shops, shows, and other events. ACBS membership means valuable discounts on classic boat insurance, services, rental cars, and more. It means access to exclusive how-to videos, workshops, and a fully searchable database of members, boats, and engines. Perhaps most valuable, membership means a connection to a community of people who share your passion for classic boats.
