HEARTLAND CLASSICS

Heartland Classics Chapter of the ACBS

Member Boats: 1971-1975

Member Boats” will display boats that presently or previously have belonged to members of the Heartland Classics Chapter.

The Antique and Classic Boat Society (ACBS) has designated age classifications which include boats of all hull material and purposes.  Although well known for wooden pleasure craft of the mid 20th century, the members’ appreciation of historic craftsmanship and styling blended with the purposeful utilitarian use of all vessels leads our members to be guardians of all types and ages of watercraft.

Boat Classifications

ACBS recognizes these age classifications:

  • Historic: A boat built up to and including 1918.
  • Antique: A boat built between 1919 and 1942, inclusive.
  • Classic: A boat built between 1943 and 1975, inclusive.
  • Late Classic: A boat built after 1975 through the year 25 years prior to the current year. (In 2019, the Late Classic period ends with boats built in 1994.)
  • Contemporary: wooden boat built within the last 25 years.

Judging classes within those age classifications are fully described on the ACBS website.
