Welcome to the Classic Boat Museum 

The Classic Boat Museum has been telling visitors and Islanders its wonderful maritime story since 1996.

 

The Boat Shed now has an impressive collection of over 70 boats, classic yachts, motor boats, and lifeboats Including Sir Ben Ainslie's 2017 Americas Cup test boat BAR T1.

 

The  Gallery in East Cowes has an extensive collection of artefacts, models, photographs, and

 uniforms. We are looking forward to your visit when we are sure you will enjoy, learn and come

to understand the quintessential Cowes story told through its maritime heritage.
