The East End Classic Boat Society was established to maintain and advance traditions of classic boat design, construction, maintenance, and seamanship through education, demonstrations, and sharing resources and ideas.
We invite anyone who would like to enjoy the fun of wooden boat building to join at the Hartjen–Richardson Community Boat Shop in Amagansett. For those with no prior woodcraft experience, it’s a chance to learn. For those with know-how, it’s an opportunity to use their skills to guide others. The cost of belonging is only $35 a year.
Our group works to maintain traditional skills used to build and restore vintage era boats. Members come from all walks of life, including metal workers, writers, cabinetmakers, artists, carpenters and doctors.
We are open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from noon to 2 p.m.
The society operates from a well-appointed, modern building filled with a wealth of equipment, tools and machinery used to construct new boats of classic design and restore vintage watercraft. The boat shop was bult in 2008 and is located behind the marine museum at 301 Bluff Road in Amagansett.
Hit the membership tab to enroll in the society and support the Community Boat Shop.
