Classic Boat

The Classic Motor Boat Association

Founded in 1998, the Classic Motor Boat Association (CMBA) can claim to be the largest organisation in the UK catering for the preservation and enjoyment of classic powerboats and engines from British and overseas manufacturers.

Run entirely by enthusiasts, the Classic Motor Boat Association is the epitome of our heritage of “messing about in boats”; good fun, good camaraderie and a wealth of good practical knowledge to be shared.  

The membership numbers approximately 260 with ages ranging from 9 to 90. Between them, the members have an estimated 700 assorted boats either in service or as projects being restored. Most are restored, some are ‘as found’ but all are cherished with a passion. 

The CMBA hold events and rallies throughout the UK from Falmouth in Cornwall to Loch Lomond and Loch Awe in Scotland, members enjoy both the fresh waters of lakes and rivers and in the saltwaters of coastal estuaries.
