37th Annual Finger Lakes Chapter
Antique and Classic Boat Show Weekend
Skaneateles, N. Y.
July 24 – 26, 2015

Mark your calendars for the 37th Annual Finger Lakes Chapter (FLC) Antique and Classic Boat Show weekend July 24-26, 2015. The event has grown from a dozen boats in 1978 to well over ninety.

For the past twenty-one years the Boat Show has been held in Clift Park on the north shore of beautiful Skaneateles Lake. The site is in the center of town, convenient to many shops and restaurants. The Show is hosted by the Finger Lakes Chapter and the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation.  

The Show affords visitors an exhibit of forty-four antique and classic boats in the water and 45-50 land displays with an opportunity to speak to the owners. We encourage owners of fiber glass classics built 1990 and earlier to exhibit their boats. All entries are eligible for judging according to the Antique and Classic Boat Society (ACBS) standards.

In addition to exhibitors from the Central New York area, various parts of the country, NJ, Ohio, Michigan, SC, and Canada are a few areas represented. We provide free launching and hauling service as well as valet parking for trailers and help with trailer hook up for those who need it at the end of Show weekend.

The weekend promises something for everyone. There is a Ship’s Store with nautical merchandise, the Syracuse Model Boat Club with in water demonstrations, a boat parade on Saturday afternoon, children’s activities, Junior Judging, raffle baskets, historic tours of the town and music throughout the weekend. Sunday morning there is a photo shoot opportunity on the Mid-Lakes Navigation’s tour boat the “Judge Ben Wiles” with many exhibitor boats circling the “Judge” at speed.
