Welcome to the 14th Annual and first ever, virtual Boathouse Tour!  We are sad we could not host our traditional in-person event this year, however we hope you will enjoy this virtual event as much as we did producing it. 

This year’s Tour will take you to three lakes across the Lakes Region into six boathouses and features a wonderful antique car collection, something we could not have done before.  Plus, Academy-Award-winning screenwriter, playwright, actor, director, and songwriter Ernest Thompson (On Golden Pond) is the Tour’s host.  

The Boathouse Tour has traditionally been a key fundraiser event for the New Hampshire Boat Museum.  As you will see the Boathouse Tour virtual experience is available to you at no cost.  Please consider making a donation to the New Hampshire Boat Museum as you watch the tour.  Your generosity will help NHBM continue to produce quality virtual experiences like this one in the future as well as in-person events, educational programs, and quality exhibitions. With your donation you will be entered into a raffle for a granite plaque from Lake Effect in Meredith, custom cut of the lake of your preference.

Thank you and Enjoy!
