Antique Marine Engine Exposition

August 18 - August 19

The transition from sail to engine power was a momentous event for the maritime industry and the world. Experience it firsthand at the 27th annual Antique Marine Engine Exposition at Mystic Seaport Saturday and Sunday, August 18-19, 2018. Collectors from around the country will show off full-size and miniature 19th- and early 20th-century marine engines and inboards, outboards, steam, gasoline, diesel, electric, and naphtha engines.

More than 300 engines will be exhibited in the Henry B. duPont Preservation Shipyard and many will be operated for your viewing and listening pleasure. A large selection of marine models will also be on display to delight the young at heart. Join us for this noisy, greasy, fun event!
