Welcome to Vintage Boats, where the past meets the present.


Vintage Boats was established in the summer of 2006 by Michael Melchiori. Michael is a graduate of the NW School of Woodenboat Building and has practiced his trade skills in the repair industry since 1998.

Michael learned the age old art of lofting, which is the beginning footprint of any new boat construction. Vintage Boats are a fusion of this traditional process while using modern materials. The end result being a product that has the classic look, while having the advantage of improved quality.

Vintage Boats offers repair and restoration as well as new boat construction. A new addition of catch and release landing nets are fine examples of Michael’s craftmanship. Visits to our shop are always welcome. Our shop is located at the old Linnton Post Office in historical Linnton, OR. Look for the duck.
