MUSEUM TO FEATURE CENTURY BOATS AT 2013 SHOW, Clayton NY, August 2-4, 2013


The Antique Boat Museum announced recently that it will feature Century Boats at its 49th Annual Boat Show and Auction being held on the Museum’s 4.5 acre campus August 2- 4, 2013.

Frederick H. Hager, executive director of the Museum, said: “We are very excited to feature Century Boats at next year’s show. While we have a few esteemed Century boats in our collection, what we hope to have on our campus in Clayton, New York, the first weekend in August will include many of the legendary manufacturer’s well-designed models including triple-cockpit speed boats, graceful mahogany runabouts, and sport boats built for the outdoorsman market, and later fiberglass models as well.”

The boat show, the longest continuously running show of its kind, typically attracts upwards of 100 wooden boats, both on the water and off, and other boating artifacts. It also includes a professionally run auction of classic, antique, replica, and one-of-a-kind wooden boats. For more information about the auction, visit antiqueboatamerica.com. A marketplace will also be set-up for the three-day show and host many suppliers offering goods including hard-to-find boat parts, engines, and nautical giftware and clothing. Additionally, the Lake Champlain ACBS chapter will be the featured guest at the show.

The Antique Boat Museum is the premier freshwater nautical museum in North America. Located on the St. Lawrence River in the 1000 Islands, the ABM features a collection of over 300 antique and classic boats among thousands of recreational boating artifacts. From May to November, the campus comes alive with speed boat rides, boat shows, and educational programs for all ages, special events and more.
