Charity Boat Donation Program

We accept and sell donated boats all year long!

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. We accept and sell all manner of craft year round, and unlike other non-profits, offer long-standing boat sales and lease/charter operations, as well as the much anticipated Rain or Shine Charity Boat Auction held annually each Labor Day weekend.

We conduct 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. We encourage you to consult with your tax advisor to learn how the donation of your vessel to CBMM can benefit you.

For more information, please contact us directly.
Charity Boat Donation Program Director: Todd Taylor at 410-745-4990 or ttaylor@cbmm.org
Charity Boat Donation Program Assistant: Josh Mills at 410-745-4942 or jmills@cbmm.org
To receive a no obligation evaluation of your boat for donation purposes, please contact us for a free assessment.

CBMM respects the privacy of our donors, members, and guests. You can be assured we will never sell or share your information with anyone or any other organization.
