Let It Sail Away for Good!

Have you been spending thousands of dollars paying off your sailboat’s soaring bills even though you hardly use that vessel anymore? If its upkeep, repair, and storage fees are stressing you out, it might be time to bid it goodbye. What’s the point of keeping that boat if it has been stuck in storage for ages? You’d be better off without it!

It might have crossed your mind to put that old rickety sailboat on sale. However, that option may leave you spending more as you’d need to fix and refurbish that boat before you can make it sellable. And there’s no guarantee that it would fetch a good price that would allow you to recoup at least part of your investment on it.

To get your hands off your unwanted sailboat, your best option is to simply donate it to us at Goodwill Car Donations. This won’t cost you a single dollar and will even enable you to get a handsome tax incentive on Tax Day. Even better than that, your sailboat donation will allow you to impact your community as you make a difference in the lives of your disadvantaged neighbors.

We will auction off your donated sailboat and turn over the proceeds to the Goodwill organizations serving your area. These IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofits cater to disadvantaged U.S. citizens — those with disabilities, those who lack education, essential skills, or job experience, and those with other limiting personal issues, such as being welfare-dependent and having past prison records.

Your local Goodwill organizations use the funding we give them to provide their beneficiaries with job and skills training, employment opportunities, scholarships, livelihood assistance, disability benefits, family support, educational services, financial assistance, and many other essential support services.

These benefits will enable the underprivileged residents of your community to find decent and stable jobs or sustainable livelihoods that would open the door to a much brighter future for them and their families. And they will be deeply indebted to those who made this possible — Goodwill donors like you.


The Amazing Rewards You’ll Get with Your Sailboat Donation

Donating your sailboat to Goodwill will benefit not just the underprivileged members of your community, but yourself as well. Expect these fantastic perks to come your way when you hand over your sailboat to Goodwill Car Donations:

  1. Claim a top tax deduction!

Following the sale of your donated sailboat, we’ll mail you its 100% tax-deductible sales receipt. This will entitle you to claim the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.

  1. Take advantage of our free pickup and towing service!

Let us know when and where you want us to collect your boat. Don’t worry, we won’t charge you even a dime for this service!

  1. We guarantee zero hassle for you!

Our team will handle everything for you, including the processing of all required paperwork. That’s how much we care about our donors!

  1. Save a lot of money!

With no more unwanted sailboat to weigh you down, you no longer have to worry about paying for its costly storage, maintenance, repairs, and insurance coverage. This will allow you to save a ton of money!

  1. Skip the hassles that come with selling a used vessel!

Selling a shabby sailboat with defective parts would be a tough challenge. You’d need to spend a fortune on its repairs and bodywork before you can confidently show it to potential buyers. Donating it to us, on the other hand, won’t require you to do anything with your boat since we’ll gladly take it as it is!

Making a Sailboat Donation to Us Would Be No Sweat

To repay our donors for their kindness and generosity, we’ve made our donation process as quick and convenient as possible. Contacting us is the only task you’ll do during the entire process. Goodwill’s team of donation specialists will take care of everything else from that point on. It’s that easy!

Here’s a sneak peek at our sailboat donation process:

  • Step 1: Connect with us.

Get in touch with us through our toll-free hotline at 866-233-8586 and provide us with a few basic details about your sailboat. Alternatively, you may fill out our online donation form to start the donation process.

  • Step 2: Schedule your boat’s free removal.

After verifying the information you shared with us, we’ll call you back to set a schedule for the collection of your boat. Tell us where we can pick up your vessel, and we’ll be there to get it at your chosen time and date. We’ll issue you a towing receipt, which you can use to cancel your boat’s registration and insurance coverage.

  • Step 3: Get your tax-deductible receipt!

Expect to receive the 100% tax-deductible sales receipt of your sailboat in your mailbox following its auction sale. This receipt will entitle you to claim the maximum tax deduction when you file your itemized tax return in the next tax season, so be sure to keep it.
