Ever wonder what the magnificent boathouses of Lake Winnipesaukee look like inside? Now is your chance to see some of the most beautiful and historic boat houses on the lake. While tickets for taking the Boathouse Tour by vintage boat or antique car are now sold out, people can still take the tour via your own car. The New Hampshire Boat Museum will host its Ninth Annual Boathouse Tour on Lake Winnipesaukee on Thursday, August 13, with a rain date of Friday, August 14. Car tickets are available for sale at the Museum by calling 603-569-4554, on line at http://www.nhbm.org, or on the day of the tour at the Museum.

“This event gets more and more popular each year.” stated Kristin Isley, the Boathouse Tour Chair. “Tickets for the water tour and antique car tour began selling fast over the winter and at a record-breaking speed. We are thrilled that we can offer an opportunity for those taking the tour via their personal car. The Boathouse Tour has become one of the Museum’s most popular events. Funds raised from the tour assist the Museum’s general operating fund.”

Taking the tour via car offers attendees a leisurely way to visit the boathouses at their own pace throughout the day from 9am until 4pm. All car tour participants meet at the Museum to begin their tour. Detailed maps with driving directions are picked up at the Museum that morning, which will open early at 9:00am to accommodate tour participants. Each boathouse location has parking easily available with signage clearly marking the site. As a special bonus for this year’s car tour participants will be three locations just for car guests. A total of seven boathouses will be viewed by self-drive car participants.

Each year, the Museum features new boathouses on the tour. All are on Lake Winnipesaukee in the Tuftonboro, Wolfeboro, and Moultonborough areas. Boathouses will boast a variety of styles and interesting stories. Greeters will be on hand to discuss the boats and the boathouse histories. Often vintage boats, cars and magnificent gardens round out the tour stops.
