The Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club is the longest-standing marque club in the world, celebrating the iconic Chris-Craft brand. This trusted name, widely regarded as classic Americana, boasts a rich history of quality craftsmanship, ingenuity, hard work, and traditional family values. Presidents, statesmen, celebrities, and well-known families have been linked with the Chris-Craft brand.
Our diverse membership includes owners and enthusiasts of Chris-Craft boats, along with other brands, of every style, vintage, size, and construction material. Our membership grows at the rate of five new members a week, providing advertisers with an ever-expanding base of vintage boating enthusiasts.
For more than 40 years the CCABC has provided our international network of members the best information available about the hobby through both our website and the Club’s quarterly publication, The Brass Bell. The CCABC partners with boat manufacturers, insurers, restorers, service companies, and others in the industry whose goods and services are of value and interest to our members. As an advertising partner of the CCABC you will become an integral part of, and have access to, this dynamic community.
The CCABC offers several ways in which you can become an advertising partner, ranging from simply placing an ad in our quarterly publication, The Brass Bell, to becoming a premier sponsor. Advertisers have a choice of print advertising only, which includes an online listing, or print plus online.
The Club’s awarded-winning quarterly publication, The Brass Bell, is the flagship publication for all antique and classic boat enthusiasts. A high quality print magazine, which is also archived online, The Brass Bell features some of the most well-known brands in the vintage boating world as advertisers. Advertisers in The Brass Bell are also listed in the Resources page of the Club’s website with links to their sites.
The Club’s website is the most comprehensive online resource for the antique and classic boating community, and its popular Boat Buzz discussion forum is the leading discussion forum for enthusiasts. By combining the power of the Club’s print and online advertising, advertisers not only maximize their reach to members, they also have access to the Club’s large online non-member audience. Online ad space is available only to advertisers of The Brass Bell.
Premier sponsorships are available for businesses looking to make a bigger impact on their business and in the Club than would a standard advertiser. Levels of sponsorship range from Platinum to Bronze. Packages include coveted placement in The Brass Bell and the website home page as well as placement on member e-mail blasts.
