NZ Antique & Classic Boat Show

Saturday 7th-Sunday 8th March 2020

The NZ Antique and Classic Boatshow is now in its 21st year, and continues to grow in the number and quality of craft presented.
Sleek cedar kayaks, jet boats from the 60s, clunky clinkers and veteran sailing craft…hours of effort from ‘blokes in sheds’ will be displayed in the spectacular setting of Lake Rotoiti in the Nelson Lakes National Park.
See the restoration projects, chat to the owners, have a laugh as boaties try to start their motors for the Seagull dinghy race with its Le Mans start.
Judging on Saturday, ahead of the evening awards ceremony at the Alpine Lodge.
At stake is the Jens Hansen Trophy where the judges are after good looks as well as history, construction and a boat with a story to tell.
