This year we will have the vintage hydros - and rumor has it that there maybe TWO newly restored unlimiteds on the course! We will again have a full fleet of vintage limited Hydros and on the shore more cars from Classic Car Club of America (Packards, Pierce Arrows, Rolls Royces,) and new for 2015 the pre-1948 Ford Club! And come check out the LeMay Americas Car Museum booth!
What a show! What a place to day dream! What a place to see the best from years gone by!
Fall beautiful blue skys are back! Help Chelan recover from the financial impact they took from the fires! Come to Mahogany & Merlot
The 6th Annual Mahogany & Merlot Vintage Boat Show is a ‘on-the-water’ boat show and FREE Family Friendly event! And again, classic cars will be showcased on the shore along with Vintage Unlimited Hydroplanes from the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum in Seattle, Vintage Inboard ‘Limited Class’ Hydroplanes, and Antique & Classic Mahogany Runabouts from the Golden Era of pleasure boating.

As many as 6 big Unlimited class hydroplanes will be attending the 2015 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 2015 Mahogany & Merlot Vintage Boat Show on our Mahogany Row presented by Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, are the meticulously restored Antique & Classic Mahogany Chris-Crafts, Centurys, Gar Woods and other makes from a bygone era. These gorgeous and pristine boats will line the docks along ‘Mahogany Row’ at Don Morse Park & Marina in beautiful Lake Chelan.
And new for 2015, we are pleased to welcome the Pre-48 Ford Club to join the Classic Cars from the PNW chapter of Classic Car Club of America. I am talking Packards, Bentleys, Rolls Royces and classic cars restored to their original condition. All these are the same cars you see at the Pebble Beach Car show! And with the addition of Pre-48 Ford Club, what else do we need to make this a show meant to make us all dream sweet dreams!!
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 and ales from Mac & Jack's!
Make it a perfect weekend with perfect entertainment!
