CBMM_BoatAuction1_Sept2_2017 CBMM_BoatAuction2_Sept2_2017 CBMM_BoatAuction3_Sept2_2017(ST MICHAELS, MD – July 3, 2017) The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum offers the opportunity to get a great deal on the boat of your dreams this Labor Day weekend during the 20th annual Charity Boat Auction on Saturday, September 2. More than 100 boats—ranging in size and performance from sailing dinghies to cabin cruisers, and everything in between—will be in the water and on land to be auctioned off to the highest bidders.

Advanced, absentee bids will be accepted, and can be called in with payment information at 410-745-4942 or taken in person until noon on Friday, September 1, 2017. As an absolute auction, all boats will be sold the day of the event, with a title office set up at CBMM for ease of transfer. All boats must be removed by Monday, September 4.

Proceeds from the rain or shine event benefit the children and adults served by CBMM’s education, restoration, and exhibition programming.

Auction boats will be available for preview on Thursday, August 31 and Friday, September 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day, with a $5 non-member admission.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase at 10:00 a.m., and beer beginning at 10:30 a.m.

CBMM’s Charity Boat Donation Program Director Todd Taylor takes donations and resells boats throughout the year, holding aside some of the inventory for the annual auction. Taylor travels the east coast working with boat owners, yacht brokers, marinas, boatyards, and other donors and potential buyers wanting to support CBMM through boat donations and sales. In preparation for the annual auction, boat sales will be suspended on Sunday, July, 30, 2017.

“100% of the revenue generated by the auction goes directly toward helping CBMM’s educational programs and restoring and preserving its historic structures and boats,” says Taylor. “Let us take an unused or unwanted boat off your hands, and you can receive a nice tax deduction. Each donated boat helps the museum do great things for the people we serve.”

The event also includes a flea market-style tag sale from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. where guests can purchase a variety of used boating gear, including ground tackle, electrical equipment, hardware, rope and chain, oars, life jackets, fishing tackle, motors, and more.

Overstock sealed-bid boat auction at CBMM April 28 – May 1

CBMM_OverstockBoatAuction_April28-May1April 28, 2016 – See the updated list of auction boats here.

(ST MICHAELS, MD – March 28, 2016) In continued support of its Charity Boat Auction program, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is holding its very first sealed-bid boat auction. Due to a large number of recent boat donations, up to 20 in-the-water boats—ranging in size and performance from cabin cruisers and sport fisherman to sailing yachts—will be auctioned off to each boat’s highest bidder.

The boats will be available to preview at CBMM beginning on Thursday, April 28 and continuing during museum hours until all sealed bids are due at noon on Sunday, May 1. The museum’s daily hours are 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in April and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in May.

“We’re in the wonderful situation of having recently received in donation an overwhelming number of in-the-water boats, for which we lack the space to dock them,” said CBMM Boat Donation Program Director Lad Mills. “So we’re looking to find good homes for them to make room for our summer marina guests, as well as future donations.”

A suggested value will be provided for each boat. Sealed bids will be opened on Monday, May 2, with all successful bidders then notified of their purchases. Auctioned boats are sold as is, and must be removed from CBMM’s docks no later than 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 7. The museum will process all taxes and the transfer of title and registration for each successful bidder.

Throughout the year, CBMM’s Boat Donation Program Director Lad Mills and Program Manager Todd Taylor travel up and down the east coast working with boat owners, yacht brokers, marinas, boatyards, and other donors and potential buyers, working to support the museum through boat donations and sales.

“100% of the revenue generated by our auctions goes directly toward helping the museum’s educational programs and restoring and preserving its historic structures and boats,” said CBMM Boat Donations Program Manager Todd Taylor. “Each sale helps the museum do great things for the people we serve.”

The spring overstock auction is in addition to CBMM’s annual Labor Day weekend live auction on Saturday, September 3, when more than 100 boats will be on land and in the water for the highest bidders to take home. Proceeds from both events benefit the children and adults served by the non-profit museum.

Through a generous grant from the Miles River Yacht Club Foundation, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum will be addressing boater safety at the overstock sealed-bid auction by providing a 4-pack of life jackets with each boat auctioned off at the event.

CBMM_MRYCFdn_LifeJacketsBoatAuction_Sept5

Life jackets donated for CBMM’s auction boats

CBMM_MRYCFdn_LifeJacketsBoatAuction_Sept5Through a grant from the Miles River Yacht Club Foundation, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum will be addressing boater safety at its September 5 Charity Boat Auction by providing free life jackets with boats auctioned off at the event.

“Thanks to the generosity of the Foundation, all our motored and large sailing auction boats will be equipped with a 4-pack of life jackets,” commented CBMM President Kristen Greenaway. “Both our organizations are passionate about being safe out on the Chesapeake and this gift facilitates that in a meaningful way, especially when we’re hearing of boating accidents where life jackets weren’t available, and could well have saved a life.”

According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the United States Coast Guard’s 2014 Recreational Boating Statistics report, the USCG counted 4,064 accidents that involved 610 deaths in 2014 alone. Where cause of death was known, 78% of fatal boating accident victims drowned. Of those drowning victims with reported life jacket usage, 84% were not wearing a life jacket.

The MRYC Foundation makes grants of funds and equipment to non-profit organizations that offer maritime-focused educational programs. In the Foundation’s first four years, more than $200,000 in grants were made to 23 non-profit organizations in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

On Saturday, September 5, more than 100 boats—ranging in size and performance from sailing dinghies to cabin cruisers, and everything in between—will be in the water and on land to be auctioned off to the highest bidders at CBMM’s 18th Annual Charity Boat Auction. All auction boats are listed at www.cbmm.org/boatauction, with updates made daily as more boats are donated to the Museum. The website also includes auction rules and information on how to place an advanced or sealed bid.

Guests can preview all the auction boats at the museum on Friday, September 4 from 9 to 5 p.m., with advanced bids accepted until 2 p.m. Boats can also be previewed beginning at 8 a.m. on September 5, with the live auction beginning at 11 a.m. Barbecue will be available for purchase at 10 a.m., with beer also available. For safety reasons, non-service dogs need to be kept home during the auction and other museum festivals, as leashed dogs are only permitted on campus during regular operating hours. Proceeds from the rain or shine event benefit the children and adults served by the non-profit museum. For more information, visit www.cbmm.org.
