Yacht Donation Program

Maine Maritime Academy’s Yacht Donation and Sales Program accepts donations of boats which are either put to immediate use on the Academy’s active waterfront, or are chartered or sold to raise funds to enhance the Academy’s waterfront training and sailing programs and other waterfront activities.

Donating your boat to Maine Maritime Academy could have a favorable impact on your year-end tax return, since your gift is tax-deductible to the extent allowable under the law. As a boat owner, you are faced with the option of selling or donating your boat and you should work with your tax advisor to determine which course is the best for you. An appraisal report and a signed IRS Form 8283 from a qualified Marine Surveyor is required for a donation. The appraisal fee is also tax deductible.

If you are interested in donating your boat please contact Joseph Lobley, Yacht Donation Manager at 207-557-5300 or joseph.lobley@mma.edu for more information.

If you are interested in purchasing or chartering a boat from Maine Maritime Academy, you may benefit by purchasing a vessel at a very competitive price.
