Thank you for considering donating your boat to Friends of Casco Bay to support our work. Our Development Director Will Everitt will receive notice of your form submission and will be in touch with you soon.
Since our our Boat Donation Program is a partnership with the Maritime Funding Association of Maine, you will be contacted from someone at their office as well.
Donating your boat has several advantages over selling it:
- Through our program you can deduct the full appraised value of your vessel as a charitable deduction in the year in which it is donated. You will not be limited to its immediate sale value.
- You may see immediate savings on your taxes close to the amount you would net from a sale, especially after considering expenses such as brokerage fees, storage, insurance and necessary improvements.
- Donating your boat removes the hassle of offers, counter offers, and constant inquiries from buyers who are shopping for a “bargain.”
- You would have the satisfaction of knowing that your boat is going to a worthy cause as it supports our efforts to improve and protect the waters that we all enjoy.
While we cannot accept every boat, we have no restriction on age or type of vessel. We require that the boat is operable and in seaworthy condition.
If you have any questions about our Boat Donation Program, please contact Will Everitt at (207) 799-8574 or willeveritt [at] cascobay [dot] org if you would like to discuss more specifics about this program.
Thank you for thinking of us!
