    Welcome to the North Carolina Coastal and Piedmont Chapter of the ACBS

Our chapter name has changed to be more inclusive of the areas of North Carolina that our chapter serves but we're still being true to our mission of supporting classic and wooden boats and their owners in North Carolina

Chris-Craft. Hacker Craft. Century, Lyman, Cruisers Inc....whatever your preference, the NC Coastal and Piedmont Chapter was created for you in an effort to advance the classic and wooden boat movement in North Carolina! We are here to promote and encourage a love and enjoyment of antique and classic boating at it’s highest level in all aspects.
We love our boats and use them on a regular basis. We can help you think about what boat is best for you, how to go about procuring one and provide assistance/guidance in maintaining your boat.
We’re also here to promote and sponsor classic boating events as well as to educate our membership and the general public on these great crafts. Additionally, we provide an annual scholarship for  student in the Wooden Boat Building Program of the Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington, NC.
If you enjoy the beauty of a wooden or classic glass boat and like to have a good time than we’re the club for you!
Check out our calendar of events for our next get together!
