Charity Boat Donation Program

We accept and sell donated boats all year long!*

2017 Auction boats and the official rules can be viewed at, with inventory updated weekly.

*Boat sales are on-going through July 31, 2017 only, with all auction boats subject to sale prior to the auction.

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 all year-round, and unlike other non-profits, offer long-standing boat sales and lease/charter operations, as well as the much anticipated annual rain or shine Charity Boat Auction, held at CBMM 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 adviser 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
Charity Boat Donation Program Assistant: Josh Mills at 410-745-4997 or
Charity Boat Donation Administration: Karen Walpole at 410-745-4942 or

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.
