Incorporating Southwold & Ipswich Boatyards

Classic Boat Festival

9th-11th September 2022

This annual three-day boating extravaganza will see around 40 beautiful vintage and exquisitely preserved vessels assemble in the central basin of St Katharine Docks in London. These include the war heroes, the Dunkirk Little Ships, Bates Starcraft and other impressive working vessels. With an array of activities including boatbuilding workshops, live music, talks and kids activities, it is the perfect day for all the family!

Visitors will be able to board some vessels and meet their caring owners and each day is marked with an opening and closing salute of horns. Talks will be held on the SKD Events Platform, with knowledgeable
hosts including the custodians of HRH The Queen’s Row Barge ‘Gloriana’ and yachting
celebrity, Tom Cunliffe. The festival continues ashore with food, entertainment, nautical goods and services available on Marble Quay.

Free entry to visitors.
