Membership Benefits


Annual Membership Directory – You will be listed in the “Who’s Who” of the antique and classic boating world along with thousands of others who share the same interests you have. This Directory comes to you annually. It has six different reference categories helping you to find the information you’re are looking for.

The ACBS Rudder –
This is the official magazine of The Antique & Classic Boat Society. It is published four times a year providing an updated calendar of events occurring in your area and across the continent. Each issue is packed with information of interest: restoration information including advertisements from vendors who may be of assistance to you in the maintenance and restoration of your boat, historic boats and builders are often profiled and every issue has a free forum for ACBS members to list items they may want to sell.

The ACBS Website – The ACBS website is regularly updated with all matter of information to keep you abreast of what’s going on at the international and local Chapter levels. The Members Only Section provides current information, resource and historical perspective.

Chapter Memberships – Membership in a local chapter offers social and fellowship opportunity. An ACBS member typically belongs to a chapter in his area and then may also belong to a secondary chapter in an area he/she likes to visit. Chapters are where it happens all year long! Boat shows, rendezvous, cruises, social events and just plain fun.

National Membership Meetings, Boat Shows, and Symposiums – Each year ACBS promotes an International Boat Show. In addition, each chapter hosts their own boat shows and events
