Dedicated to those who love and care for Vintage, Classic Boats in America’s Heartland


Heartland Classics Chapter of the ACBS

Member Boats

Boats presently or previously owned by members of the Heartland Classics Chapter.

Every boat has its own unique story.

Is the information up to date on the boats you own?

Do you need to add a photo with a story to the fleet of Members Boats?

Photos could be of a boat that is new to you, or of one for which you have been the guardian for awhile.  Boat stories can always have new chapters … send the latest updates, also.

Boat Age Classifications

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.

Judging Classes

Judging classes within those age classifications are fully described on the ACBS website. Click to learn more about the ACBS judging system.

Heartland Classics Members’ Boats are represented in each Classification except the Historic.
