Maritime Heritage Alliance Boat Auction Slated for June


Mark your calendar for the Maritime Heritage Alliance (MHA) Boat Auction and Boating Equipment Sale on June 4, 2016. This year’s auction viewing starts at 9 a.m., with bidding starting at 11 a.m. The auction is held at the MHA campus in Traverse City, Michigan. All of the boats are donated to support their many programs, including a boat restoration shop, maintenance of their historic fleet and the sailing program for at-risk youth.

Last year’s auction had more than 40 boats and this year will be even larger. Most boats (both power and sail) are on trailers, from an 8-foot car topper to a 25-foot live aboard.

This has become an annual “family fun day.” Along with the boats up for auction, you’ll find many boating accessories, food and drinks. The boat restoration shop, modeler shop and ship’s store will be open as well.
