Looking for the Best Recreational Vessel to Enjoy with Your Family?

Did you know that registered recreational boating vessels in the United States numbered approximately 12 million as of 2020, with Florida being the state reporting the most recreational boat registrations?

Indeed, boating is one of the favorite social pastimes among Americans who like to take refuge on the water.


What Are the Most Popular Boats in America?

If you’re one of the numerous fans of boating, you probably have had your fair share of beautiful sunset views while enjoying quality time with your family and friends. However, if you’re someone who’s looking to embark on your first boating adventure, you’re probably looking for the right vessel to purchase or rent. Goodwill Car Donations has pulled together the most popular boats in the country to help you narrow down your choices.

  1. Boston Whaler 270 Dauntless Boat

Since the 270 Dauntless was launched in 2012, it has proven to be a fast-rising star that’s ideal for fishing offshore, nearshore, and inshore. Its roomy cockpit consists of a leaning post with 4-rod holders as well as a 94-quart cooler. Fishing options include a luxurious helm station that comes with a 30-gallon live well, an integrated hardtop, and 3 drawers.

Moreover, its large storage garage ahead of the console can accommodate your required fishing and safety equipment. On top of this storage area is a creative aft bench seating that can seamlessly transform from a large casting platform into a comfortable place to kick back and relax on the water.

  1. Lagoon 380 Boat


If your idea of a good time involves the ultimate luxury sailing experience, you can never go wrong with a catamaran — a multi-hulled watercraft that derives its stability from its wide beam.

The most famous charter catamaran is a Lagoon 380. Besides offering enhanced stability and ease of handling, it features large living areas with vibrant interiors that make this vessel ideal for great cruising pleasures. Since the Lagoon 380 is excellent for both sailing and motor boating, it gives sailors of all levels the experience of riding in style and comfort.

  1. Bavaria Cruiser 46 Boat

The Bavaria Cruiser 46’s outstanding efficiency, spacious living spaces, and luxurious interior design make it a popular choice among water-loving Americans. This boat model was designed and built by the brand Bavaria in collaboration with award-winning BMW Design Works USA and Farr Yacht Design. As such, it boasts comfort, style, and outstanding sailing performance.

Thanks to its twin rudders and a beam that’s carried well aft, this Cruiser makes for a solid yacht with plenty of rooms below deck. Moreover, this vessel has a generator, air conditioning, in-mast furling, and a large swim platform that comes with all the amenities required for a fun and relaxing cruising experience.


Tired of Maintaining Your Old Boat or Any Other Vehicle?

If you’ve lost interest in your old boat or any other type of vehicle you have that has turned into a money pit, consider donating it to us at Goodwill Car Donations. We’ll use your donation to help empower the disadvantaged residents of your community so they can live productive and fulfilling lives.

Our team will auction off your donated vehicle and turn over the proceeds to the Goodwill organizations serving your area. These IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofits cater to disadvantaged Americans — those who are saddled with disabilities, lack of education, job experience, or essential skills, and other limiting personal issues, such as being a former inmate or having a welfare mentality.

Your local Goodwill organizations use the extra funding we give them to provide more disadvantaged individuals with job and skills training, vocational services, scholarships, financial aid, mentoring and internship assistance, disability benefits, family support, and other types of support services. These are all meant to equip these folks with the tools that will help them attain economic independence and a better quality of life.

We’ll pick up and tow your vehicle for free anywhere in the country.

Your donation will also entitle you to claim the maximum tax deduction when you file your income tax return in the next tax season.

What’s more, you can count on us to provide you with a highly satisfying donating experience, knowing that your act of charity will help generate new jobs in your community. These are new opportunities for growth and progress that will benefit all residents.

We accept almost all types of vehicles, whether they’re still in good condition or no longer.
