- Get in touch with us.
You can contact us in two ways: Either fill out our online donation form or phone us. We’ll be asking for specific details regarding your watercraft, as well as your personal contact information. We’ll call you back promptly to arrange a place and time for your vessel’s free towing.
- We collect your boat.
We’ll coordinate with a local towing company to pick up and tow your vessel for us. Before the driver leaves with your boat, he will issue you a towing receipt. From that point on, you will no longer be held liable for anything that happens to your boat.

Within 30 days after the sale of your West Palm Beach, FL boat donation, we’ll send you your 100% tax-deductible sales receipt via mail. The receipt will reveal your boat’s final selling price, which serves as your basis for the amount of tax deduction you can claim when you file your itemized federal income tax return in the next tax season.
