The Northern California/Lake Tahoe Chapter of The Antique & Classic Boat Society (ACBS) is dedicated to people who love and enjoy classic boats from the polished mahogany runabouts made from the ‘20s through the ‘60s to the classic fiberglass ones that changed the face of pleasure boating. Members are an active community of classic boat enthusiasts from all walks of life.

Since its founding in 1975 on the shores of Lake George, New York, The Antique and Classic Boat Society, Inc. (ACBS) has grown into the largest society in the world dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of classic boats. We embrace all styles of classic wood, fiberglass and metal boats.

With 6,800 family memberships (approximately 11,500 individuals) worldwide, ACBS connects people with the common interest in classic boats to share fellowship, information, experiences, and ideas. Our local Northern California/Lake Tahoe Chapter has more than 450 member families.

The Northern California chapter is one of the most active chapters in the USA with boating events beginning in May and continuing until October, in several locations around Northern California. There is truly something for everyone. Check for yourself at
