Visitors can experience the maritime transition from sail to mechanical power at the 20th annual Antique Marine Engine Exposition at Mystic Seaport, which will be held this weekend.

Nearly 300 examples of early marine engines from around the country, including unique selections from Mystic Seaport’s own collection, will be on display from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., respectively

A broad range of inboards, outboards, and steam engines will be shown at the Museum’s Henry B. duPont Preservation Shipyard, including a rare Continental radial motor used to power a World War II amphibious landing craft. Additional engines dating from 1889-1963 manufactured by Evinrude, Johnson, Herreshoff, Kriebel and others can be viewed in the North Boat Shed.
