Canada’s Largest Vintage Boat Show back in Gravenhurst on July 9


June 28, 2022

ACBS PosterThis year the ACBS will be holding their 41st Anniversary Vintage Boat Show promoting the theme of “Magic on the Water”.

The Gravenhurst, ON venue is a true jewel to hold an in-water boat show and this year we are expecting a full house from a vintage boat registration as well as attendance. This show clearly delivers some of the finest antique/vintage wooden boats as well as unique vintage glass in the country and beyond.

There are many new initiatives planned this year, a J- Craft water-ski show with vintage boats and skiers along with children’s activities, Nautical flea market, Boats4sale, vendors and much more.

With the historic steamships in the background, the Muskoka Wharf in Gravenhurst, Ontario showcases an incredible variety of Vintage, Antique and Classic boats from elegant mahogany Launches to dainty Dippys to nimble Cedar Strips to flashy Fibreglass to incredible reproductions honouring the originals and everything in between. 

For those looking for that elusive boat part, there is the Nautical Flea Market. In Vendors Alley you will find everything from artwork to shoes.  And for those who want to own their own vintage boat, be sure to visit the Boats4Sale area. The Maple Leaf Antique Outboard Club will be there again this year with an extensive show and sale of vintage outboard motors.  And take advantage of a special 2 for 1 admission dead to visit the Muskoka Steamships & Discovery Centre.
