The Final Open House at Acorn to Arabella


Acorn to Arabella's last open house before launching in 2023 will be a two-day event, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. They look forward to hosting visitors, and this will be a final opportunity for the general public to walk on deck.

The final two planks of the boat will be cut, and visitors will be able to choose one of three templates of increasing size, and for a contribution, may sign the plank within that templated area. Since the interior of the boat will be simply oiled, the signatures and well wishes will be visible with a peek up into the area where the sheer plank is.
