Boston Whaler Donations: Uplift Lives with Your Unsinkable Boat

If you are a boating enthusiast, you must be familiar with the name Boston Whaler. It is a boat company established in 1958 by Richard Fisher who wanted to build high-quality boats. With 60 years of experience in building boats, the company has established a reputation for supplying durable and innovative recreational boats to its clients.

Because of the company’s innovations and high-quality craftsmanship, its boats have been described as “unsinkable legends of the water.”

Some Boston Whaler models were reportedly used during the Vietnam War while some units of the U.S. Navy Seals and Coast Guard still use the company’s boats in rescue missions and river patrols.

If you’ve owned a Boston Whaler for a long time, you could attest to its durability. However, years of use take its toll even on the sturdiest boats, and your boat may now be due for retirement.

Before you decide to bid goodbye to your boat, ask yourself: Is the high cost of maintaining your watercraft already outweighs its benefits? The expenses of owning a boat do not stop with a one-time payment for the purchase. You have to factor in the costs of insurance, storage, registration, and taxes. These could run up to hundreds of dollars a month. If your boat is already showing signs of disrepair, with some parts needing to be replaced, that would mean more expenses for you.

If you think you can still sell your old and battered boat at a good price, then, by all means, go ahead! However, if you’d only get a pittance out of it, consider this idea: How about simply donating that Boston Whaler to an organization that will give you all the best rewards you can get from a charitable contribution? How about making a Boston Whaler donation to us at Goodwill Car Donations?
