Wooden Boat Parade

Celebrating the Classic & Wooden Boats of Lake Rotoiti

The Association

The Lake Rotoiti Classic & Wooden Boat Association (LRCWBA)  is a community organisation which exists to recognise and foster classic and wooden boats and enhance facilities on Lake Rotoiti, North Island.


Please consider joining the Association and receive the following benefits; reduced event entry cost, informative newsletter, advanced notice of classic boats for sale, network of skilled boat owners and builders, access to the library... and of course friends and fun. Membership is only $10 per family per annum. You do not need a classic or wooden boat to join so sign up today.

Our Generous Sponsors

Our Association relies entirely on membership & event fees and voluntary labor - but also the generous support of a number of local sponsors who we would like to thank warmly. We have listed and linked to them here.


The LRCWBA hosts a number of annual events on Lake Rotoiti in the Bay of Plenty, North Island, New Zealand including the annual Wooden Boat Parade, Drift through the Ohau Channel, Dinghies & Family Fun, Lake Circumnavigation & Poker Run, Long Lazy Lunch, Light Parade, AGM & Mid-Winter Dinner, Fishing Fun and Spring BBQ Breakfast, Hot Swim & Cruise.

Register of Boats

See our amazing catalogue of former parade entrants: register of classic boats. The registry is broken into 8 categories. You can also use the search magnifying glass to find a boat or your boat. If your boat is missing pictures or a text description please email our webmaster with the missing content. You can use your boat's page to build a profile, promote or sell your boat.
