Classic Boat Centre Trust


We are an exciting and award winning all weather attraction based on the waterside in the Isle of Wight. We are able to offer a fascinating collection of sailing and power boats of local and national interest to both family visitors and maritime enthusiasts alike.
Displays include photographs, films, tools, artefacts, models, books and many other items associated with the history of boating over the past century. From unique trophies loaned by Dame Ellen MacArthur to classic wooden boats of international renown, we have something of interest to both children and adults.

More than 50 craft available for visitors to view. From notable sailing boats such as Uffa Fox's Airborne Lifeboat, Lord Brabazon’s autogyro rigged Bembridge Redwing and 'Coweslip', the Flying Fifteen belonging to HRH Prince Phillip, to everyday dinghies, canoes and rowing boats, as well as elegant river craft and powerboats.
