From the time of its first official general meeting and board meeting of officers and directors on February 9, 1975, in Boston, the Antique & Classic Boat Society (ACBS) has been dedicated to bringing together people with a love of antique and classic boats and boating.

Our mission is to promote the love and enjoyment of all aspects of classic boating. In furtherance of that goal, ACBS also provides scholarships to worthy students seeking careers in the field of antique marine restoration and preservation. ACBS also acts as a central governing body for the classic boating hobby and our chapters.

Membership in ACBS also provides access to a range of information from our award-winning magazine, The Rudder, to restoration videos and numerous member discounts, including discounts on boat insurance. Our regular activities include boat shows, restoration symposiums, and quarterly meetings in some of the most beautiful boating areas in North America.
