Founded in 1975, the Manotick Classic Boat Club (MCBC) promotes the appreciation of historic, antique and classic boats. The over 100 members of MCBC are a group of people from different backgrounds who share a common interest in the preservation and the enjoyment of these fine craft.
Member boats come in all shapes and sizes including old wooden canoes, sailboats, runabouts and cruisers. And, you don’t have to own a boat to be a member just have an interest and passion for these beautiful water craft!
The Manotick Classic Boat Club promotes a number of local boating and social events including our Ottawa International Antique and Classic Boat Show held annually in varying locations along the Rideau waterway.
MCBC has an extensive library of videos and books, as well as lots of great advice from other members who really care about preserving and having fun in classic boats. Our extensive collection of books, printed materials and videos is an invaluable information resource for all club members.
