The 7th Annual Southport Wooden Boat Show, sponsored by the SWBS Committee, a 501(c)3 organization, will be held on Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 10am until 4pm.
As with last year’s show, boats will be displayed in and around the historic Old Yacht Basin in Southport, North Carolina.
The very popular Nauti-kids events will return to this year’s show, where the little sailors will be able to build (with or without help) their own boats and test their sea-worthiness. A new collectors’ quality poster has been designed for the show, which will be available for sale prior to the show, as will the special edition T-shirt for this year’s show. One of the most exciting events of this year’s SWBS will be the Southport Wooden Boat Show Seafood Chowder Cook-off, sponsored by Brunswick Catch.
The Southport Wooden Boat Show [501 c(3)] purpose is to promote interest in and disseminate knowledge of the craft and art of wooden boat construction, to support efforts to preserve wooden boat construction and skills and to celebrate the region’s maritime and boatbuilding history.
We can’t wait to welcome you to the 25th Annual WoodenBoat Show at Mystic Seaport, June 24-26, 2016! We have in-water space available for boat builders to show off their latest projects and also for those who are trying to sell their boat or owners who just want to show off their traditional wooden boat and enjoy the weekend dockside.


The most dynamic wooden boat show in the country, with the premier American maritime museum Mystic Seaport.
Presented and produced by WoodenBoat Magazine, hosted by Mystic Seaport in Mystic, Connecticut, to an audience of over 13,000 boating enthusiasts each year. I had never heard of Port Townsend on that fateful day that I drove into the Boat Haven Boat Yard. I have been fortunate enough to make it to every show since including last year when I had to hitchhike to PT and couch surf. Every year I have made wonderful new friends, the carnival atmoshpere is the greatest show on earth. I’ve always dreamed of spending a winter sailing out of Port Townsend with all the crusty old salts that have forgotten more about sailing than I will ever know.

Visitors will be able to meet and talk with wooden boat makers and owners, and to vote for their favorite boat entrant for the People’s Choice Award.


Exhibits from the North Carolina Aquarium and The Ft Fisher Underwater Archeology Branch will enhance the afternoon activities. Nautical & maritime demonstrations are planned along the waterfront, and the model boat exhibit will return to the “Old Visitor Center” Southport. Up to ten teams will compete for cash prizes and the title of “SWBS Chowder Champion for 2016”.
We are working hard to gather the very best in-water exhibits, to fill the tents with your favorite maritime vendors, to collect as many reader-built boats as we can fit on the village green, to offer the most informative skills demonstrations, and most of all to create a weekend for all visitors to enjoy beautiful wooden boats!
Once again, a signed and framed original poster will be up for raffle, with tickets available from any SWBS Information Booth, and at the Ship’s Store tent. The tasting and voting period will occur from 11am till 2pm, and the new champion will be announced at 3pm.
