Donating a boat to a charity that specializes in marine donations is an excellent way to get the most out of your contribution. You can donate your boat to a program that also accepts other vehicles such as cars, RVs, and trucks. These organizations will often have the most streamlined pickup systems and fastest turnaround times.

If you're looking for an organization that specializes in boat donations, the Internet is a great place to start. Many people choose a program that allows their money to go overseas to be used for a variety of purposes, including food, education, and AIDs medications.

Filling out a Boat Donation Request

Once you find a charitable organization or boat donation program, you need to fill out a boat donation inquiry form. This form will typically ask for some basic information about your boat, and helps the charity determine the best use for your contribution. In order for charity officials to pick up your boat, you must fill out this form.

The typical boat donation form asks you to describe the condition of your boat. You will need to provide the name of the manufacturer, the year, model, and make for your boat. In addition, you may need to provide information on the hull materials, length, beam, draft, engine hours, water capacity and fuel capacity. Most charities pick up boats and other vehicles within three to five days of completing an official donation request.
