As many as 6 big Unlimited class hydroplanes will be attending the 2014 Mahogany & Merlot event with names like: Atlas Van Lines, Miss Thriftway, Miss Wahoo & Miss Burien. These same raceboats, now restored and preserved raced on Beautiful Lake Chelan in the late 1950’s. Also showcased will be up to 20 beautifully restored smaller inboards (limited class) Hydroplanes and Racing Runabouts. While the Unlimited Hydroplanes run the WWII Aircraft Power Plants, these vintage ‘limited’ class boats utilize a variety of automotive based engines.
Rounding out the 2014 Mahogany & Merlot Vintage Boat Show on our Mahogany Row, presented by Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, are the meticulously restored Antique & Classic Mahogany Chris-Craft’s, Century’s, Gar Wood’s and other makes from a bygone era. These gorgeous and pristine boats will line the docks along ‘Mahogany Row’ presented by Berkshire Hathaway Home Services at Don Morse Park & Marina in beautiful Lake Chelan.
And for 2014, more Classic Cars from the PNW chapter of Classic Car Club of America. I am talking Kaisers, Bentleys, Rolls Royce's, Woody's and classic cars restored to their original condition. These are the same cars you see at the Pebble Beach Car show!
Hydro exhibition races will begin early Saturday morning, so be sure to get in on the action early! All free and open to the public all weekend long.
After you are done looking at all the boats and cars, browse through our vendor area with Vintage items, a classic boat parts swap meet, wine barrel furniture and much more. Then to one of our delicious food booths or enjoy the action from our Beer and Wine garden featuring Vin du Lac, Tsillian, Rio Vista and Tunnel Hill wines and ales from Mac & Jack's!
Make it a perfect weekend with perfect entertainment!
