It has to be about 30 years old or so. Classic boats can be very expensive unless it isn't fixed up. If it isn't fixed up then it can be considered a project rather than a boat.

In general, a car is considered a classic if it is over 20 years old and is maintained in its original design and condition. However, some car enthusiasts may consider cars as young as 15 years old to be classics depending on their significance and popularity. Ultimately, classic status can vary depending on personal preference and the specific car in question.
