Vintage Boat and Car Auction Expected to Draw Crowds

WOLFEBORO— On Sat., July 13 at the Vintage Boat and Car Auction, hosted by New Hampshire Boat Museum (NHBM), bidders will have the opportunity to win everything from vintage cars to fiberglass boats, sailboats, canoes, and other memorabilia.

“This year, we're moving to a venue across the street from the Museum to The Nick Recreational Center,” said NHBM Executive Director Martha Cummings. “We will have better parking for attendees, more seating, and more space for auction items, boats, cars, and ‘boating-mobilia.’”

Net proceeds from the event support educational programs and other initiatives at NHBM, which opens for the season on June 29.

"This is a big year for us, as we continue to raise funds for our Capital Campaign for a new museum building," added Cummings. "Auction goers can learn more about the land we have already purchased for it at the event and where we are going as an educational and experiential-learning organization.”

New England Vintage Boat and Car Auction begins at 10:00 a.m. on Sat., July 13 at The Nick Recreational Center in Wolfeboro with free admission. Item previews begin on Fri., July 12 from 12:00-5:00 p.m. and on July 13 from 8:00-10:00 a.m.

The auction will feature boats, vintage boating memorabilia, vintage cars, vintage car memorabilia and maritime antiques. Donations and consignments welcome with a deadline of July 5th for consideration with no exceptions.
