Charity Boat Donation Program

We accept and sell donated boat ALL YEAR-ROUND!

CBMM’s Charity Boat Donation Program is one of the most reputable, highly-experienced operations in the region, giving you confidence in knowing the donation of your vessel is being handled by seasoned professionals. CBMM accepts and sells all manner of craft all year-round, and unlike other non-profits, offers long-standing boat sales and lease/charter operations, as well as the much anticipated annual rain or shine Charity Boat Auction, held at CBMM on the Saturday of each Labor Day weekend.

Hear CBMM Charity Boat Donation Program Director Todd Taylor talk about the Charity Boat Donation Program in a 12/5/17 radio interview with WCEI’s Matt Spence.

CBMM’s Charity Boat Donation Program conducts transactions quickly and fairly, without the outside assistance or expense of a third-party organization.

Whether you donate or buy a boat, 100% of the proceeds go toward supporting the children and adults served by our education, curatorial, and boatbuilding programs. Through your generosity, you are helping to assure the sustainability of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum for future generations.

*Each individual’s situation is different. You are encouraged to consult with your tax adviser to learn how the donation of your vessel to CBMM can benefit you.
