"There's nothing, absolutely   
nothing, half so much worth   
doing as simply messing   
around in boats."

Welcome to the Guild!

Our Mission

The Classic Yacht Restoration Guild is dedicated to the preservation of traditional watercraft. Yacht restorations are accomplished through a combination of member donated skills and resources. The Guild is fortunate to have talented volunteer
leadership and a growing membership.

The mission of the Guild is continuing education of those interested in boat restoration. The flagship, Elf, is used to educate members interested in maritime history, historical restoration techniques, seamanship, and tidewater ecology. Elf's mission embraces an established tradition of giving back to the community that has provided a home and resources needed for her restoration.
