It’s a Win-Win: Donate Your Boat

As boating season comes to an end, consider this: does your boat still inspire joy in you? If not, perhaps it’s time to consider the wise (and increasingly popular) words of Marie Kondo “Keep only those things which speak to your heart.”

Through our Boat Donation program, Maine Maritime Museum can help you find a home for your boat where it does spark joy for its new owner—not to mention the great benefits for you, the donor. No more storage and maintenance fees, insurance, or repairs to worry about. Best of all, when you donate you’ll be able to take the full appraised value of your boat as a charitable tax deduction—a better and easier deal than trying to sell it!

We partner with the Maritime Funding Association of Maine to handle the entire process, so it’s smooth sailing for you. And once it’s done, maybe you’ll upgrade and find the boat that does spark joy for you.

Get in touch today to find out if your boat qualifies for the program: you can contact Director of Development Rebecca Roche at 207-443-1316 ext. 327 or roche@maritimeme.org.
