The Buffalo Launch Club enjoys a unique position in the history of the Niagara frontier, as well as, the national scene.
When the Buffalo Launch Club was formed in 1903 it was the first Power Boat Club in North America, if not the world, and contributed much to the recognition of our area.
The Maritime Center's state-of-the-art boat shop services the boat courses, workshops, outreach programs, and historic conservation and restoration projects. It also serves as a laboratory for innovative design, a classroom for partner institutions, and a support facility for the Historic Boat Museum
