Here you’ll find viewer contributions of beautiful antique and classic boats. Every vintage boat and event tells a story.

ACBS offers a “Most Original Award” to Chapters to use for their boat show.  The Award is to be used to honor a boat that has been primarily preserved as it was originally manufactured.  Here are the chapter winners for 2016. (Hover over the picture to see its caption.)

“Bad Donato V” is Barnegat Bay’s 2016 Featured Boat. She is always an attention getter when seen plying the waters of Barnegat Bay, NJ. “Bad Donato V” is a rugged 43′ home-built cruiser crafted entirely by master woodworker and boat builder Sam Donato. Built in 2002 and powered by twin Cummins diesels, this one-of-a-kind cruiser is a regular participant and award winner at the Barnegat Bay Chapter’s Annual Boat Show.
