  • We were visiting in the area and just happened upon the family days. It was fun to see all the displays and specials put on by the festival. We enjoyed our time here.
  • Wonderfully restored and presented wooden boats of wide variety and years. Many outboard motors and onboard engines
  • INSANE!!!!!!!!!! they have a massive collection of boats that are in great shape. i went there with my parents about 4 years ago. my dad is a fisherman so he dug a lot of the boats there
  • Anyone interested in powerboat history and their naval architecture and technology must see this collection. Visitors can do completely self guided tours at their own speed. On the water experiences are offered.
  • Must visit place in the area. A LOT of awesome beautiful boats. You can call ahead of time and schedule a ride on one of those Rolls Royce like luxury wooden motorboats and they are extremely fast - so much fun!
