Murray Walker Grace and Speed Boathouse


The Murray Walker Grace and Speed Boathouse houses North America’s largest collection of in-water classic antique wooden boats. The collection is always changing.  All the boats are privately owned and are on display due to the generosity of their owners.

During the winter months, the boats are displayed on beams, their hulls visible to the naked eye.  During the summer, they are in-water as they were always intended to be.

Winter 2017-18

The boats are out of the water, resting on beams to overwinter.  You don’t often have the opportunity to see the hulls of our beautiful wooden boats. The boathouse is open all winter, except Mondays.
