Boat Donations & Sales

Send your boat to school!

Sail Charlevoix welcomes tax-deductible boat and/or equipment donations of good working order. We will evaluate each boat's utility to the program and some may be sold to help support our sailing programs, funding scholarships, fleet improvements and other capital needs.  Large boats should have a trailer. We require a title and or registration; same for the trailer. Please sign the back of the title - without designating a new owner. Upon sale of the boat, you will receive formal receipt for tax purposes.
