antique  classic boat festival photoAhoy! You don’t get to see boats like this every day! See a wonderful variety of rare vintage motor yachts and sailboats from 1900-1960s.

The flash of polished bronze and gleam of varnished wood across the water will be the order of the day as elegant antique and classic yachts sail into the host city of Salem, MA for the 36th Annual Antique & Classic Boat Festival August 24-25, 2019.

Mostly wood, primarily private yachts and aesthetically stunning, the vessels will be on display to the public over the weekend at Hawthorne Cove Marina.

A hallmark of the Festival is the great variety of craft exhibited. “Where else,” says Pat Wells, Coordinator, “can one see 1900s-60s motor yachts, mahogany speedboats, sloops, yawls, schooners and a 19th century gold-leaf canoe!

Although many of these craft are museum quality, they are real boats in the water and in use by their owners today.'
