Boat Auction

The Museum's annual Boat Auction will take place at the Museum on Saturday, July 20th at 12:30pm.  This is the same weekend of the Wine Country Classic Boat Show in Hammondsport.  The more boating enthusiasts the better! 


Auction boats are usually staged a few days prior to the auction in the parking lot across Pleasant Valley Road from the main building and next to the Al Wahlig Education Center (AWEC) (former Building #5).

Bidder registrations will be taken and final auction lot sheets will be distributed beginning at 10:30am.  The auction will kick off on time at 12:30pm.

As in previous years, licensed auctioneer John Reynolds will be presiding.

If you would like to donate a boat to sell at auction to benefit the Museum, or enter your boat on Consignment (Museum receives 10% of the final sale price as an unrestricted donation), please contact the Museum at (607)569-2222 or 


You may also begin the process by downloading the donation/consignment form by clicking on the button at right.  Boat and Trailer title/registration paperwork should also be submitted with donation if available.

Remember, all proceeds go to Museum operational expenses, and therefore a good cause!

If you have a boat you would like to donate or enter into the auction, please click on the below button to download a Boat Donation/Consignment Form that must be filled out and delivered with your boat and registration paperwork.  In some cases Museum volunteers may be able to pick up your boat if it is a strict donation (not consignment) within a reasonable distance from the Museum.
