– How do I navigate the site? Do you have a tour with helpful tips?
We’ve created a video that gives you a tour of the show’s website by Co-founders Steve Stone and Nate Rooks:

– What are the selection criteria for the classic boats at the show?
Good, interesting boats with a classic aesthetic, construction and sensibility are the focus of this show. Boats built by hand to good designs are favored over modern production boats popped out of molds. We also like funk, so a funky houseboat with character and funk rates right up there with the finest of classic luxury yachts moored in Monaco or Cannes. We’re boatbuilders, camp cruisers, rowers, live-aboards. We like good, strong, beautiful, seaworthy boats more than prestige and exclusivity.

– How many boats are in the Show?
The 2022 Show featured over 1,000 boats!

– How many countries are represented?
Participating boats and organizations come from over 70 different countries.

– Can I add my own boat to the Show?
Yes, subject to review by our crew. Boat pages are created by owners, and you can CLICK HERE to create your own. We will only publish boat pages featuring several good photos and thoughtful/thorough descriptions.

– I know a great classic/wooden boating organization, but it’s not on the map. Can I add it?
Yes, please do! You can CLICK HERE to create a new organization page. Employees of the organization will be able to “take over” the page and edit it down the road if they choose.

– Will there be workshops/presentations at the Show?
The daily presentations are a highlight of each year’s Show. We do not focusing on how-to workshops – we have the whole Off Center Harbor website for that. The talks are inspiring and enlightening looks at different parts of the classic boating world, from a young bloke in Australia setting out to row across the Pacific to a look at many of the top wooden boat festivals of Europe.  You can see the full lineup by clicking “Live Events” in the top menu above.

      Hi Syd,

      Our apologies for not getting Black Witch in this year – we were running flat out, and we couldn’t get to all of the boats entered after the Show has started.

      Her page is still there, and I can already say that she’ll be accepted into the 2023 Show!

    How can you view profiles? Want to review my local boaters. Hopefully I don’t have to message each for permission! What’s the point of profiles if no one can see them?

      Hi Björn. If you go to >My Account >Guest Map Settings you can change your town/etc and that will change your location on the map.

    Where are the videos of boats?

    • Boat Show Crew 3 months ago

      Hi David,

      Videos are available on the boat profile pages, but not all boats had videos submitted by the owner. We tried to include as many as possible in the pages we created. If you see a boat on the map or listed underneath, just click on their profile and you can find more information.

        You can also search for “video” in the Boat search bar and it should bring up a lot of the boats that have videos attached (not all, yet)!

    How do i view boats?

    • Boat Show Crew 3 months ago

      Hi Jeffrey,

      You can view boats a couple of different ways.

      The worldwide map on the homepage is a great way to zoom in and out around the world. The checkbox to the right will allow you to pick what will show up in your search.

      You can also click on the category Boats in the upper menu to browse. You can enter different search criteria (for example, if you were looking for Herreshoff designs you could include that in your search).

      Happy Exploring!

    I love just drooling over all the boats. But the constant in and out and running all over the map gets tiring… Is there another way to see all the boats? thanks

      Hi Charles,

      You can also click on the category Boats in the upper menu to browse. You can enter different search criteria (for example, if you were looking for Herreshoff designs you could include that in your search).

      Happy boat exploring!

    I would like to share this with some friends in Sweden or better yet, to Facebook but I can’t locate a share button.
