The Mid-Atlantic Chapter is an affiliation of The Antique and Classic Boat Society and is not only dedicated to the preservation and restoration of recreational boats and their history, but also their operation. The diversity of its members represents all aspects of this hobby. Including the ability to maintain, repair, and even build significant examples of the development of leisure-time and commercial boating. A pre-war boat is considered an antique and any boat whether it be made of wood, metal, or fiberglass 25 years or older qualifies as an classic. However you don’t even have to own a boat to be a member. If you are a boating enthusiast, enjoy being on the water, and admire older boats, you can become a member and join the fun and fellowship. 

   We currently regularly meet on the second Tuesday of odd numbered months at 7:00 PM. in The Eddington House, 2813 Hulmeville Road, Bensalem, Pennsylvania, 19020. Even during the Pandemic many members have been able to join us and stay connected on Zoom.
