The East End Classic Boat Society hosts local marine events, exhibits classic boats, and conducts workshops to teach the skills necessary to build and preserve quality, handcrafted wooden boats. We're proud of our young organization, staffed entirely by volunteers, because we fulfill our purpose.
Sag Harbor Cultural Heritage Day Celebration at the Custom House in Sag Harbor
We have been invited by the Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities to exhibit the skills of traditional wooden boat building on the Custom House lawn on Heritage Day. This is quite an opportunity as we will be the only exhibitor that day and this is where we built our first boat fourteen years ago!

Our beautiful exhibit space is located in Mitchell Park, which is on the waterfront where the popular antique carousel is located. This festival is very well attended. It's a perfect opportunity to talk with the member boat builders.
