CBMM's Charity Boat Donation Program. We accept and sell donated boats all year long!

Charity Boat Donation Program

Whether you donate or buy a boat, you help CBMM preserve an important heritage and pass it on to a new generation. Like two sides of a coin, when one person donates a boat and a second person purchases it, both contribute to our mission. Run by experienced staff and invaluable volunteers, the Charity Boat Donation Program has made donating and buying boats straightforward and easy for more than 20 years. Even better, 100% of all money raised directly benefits the children and adults who enjoy CBMM’s many exhibitions and educational programming.


CBMM updates its available inventory on this website often. All transactions done with CBMM’s Charity Boat Donation Program are handled proficiently by experienced staff members. The high point of CBMM’s year is the much anticipated, rain or shine, annual Charity Boat Auction, held at CBMM on the Saturday of each Labor Day weekend. Proceeds from all sales benefit the children and adults served by CBMM’s many enjoyable and educational programs. Call to 410-745-4942 or email to arrange to see any available boat.


Sign up for CBMM’s Navy Point News here to get the latest on boats emailed directly to you.

The procedure for donating your boat is simple and straightforward. CBMM does all the paperwork, and provides you with appropriate tax deduction forms. CBMM can even pick up your boat for free, or you can deliver it to us. CBMM respects the privacy of our donors, members, and guests. You can be assured CBMM will never sell or share your information with anyone or any other organization.

CBMM needs volunteers to help bring donated boats to the museum. Whether you are able to tow a boat on a trailer from the donor to the museum, or would like to be on a crew that brings boats to CBMM over water, your help is welcomed. When you volunteer, you help the Charity Boat Donation Program raise important funds for CBMM’s educational programs. Click here to learn more about volunteering with CBMM.
