Custom trawler donated in Washington, NC and renovated by Action Donation Services for ocean conservation foundation.We have the trust and confidence of some of the best-known charities in America, with whom we work exclusively to process the boat donations they receive.

We are completely committed to unsurpassed customer service when you donate a boat. We send all the IRS required receipts and forms promptly to donors as soon as vessels are sold.

We increase the selling price of donations whenever it is economically beneficial to the charity by performing renovations, and then, when feasible, marketing the vessel in the retail market rather than in the wholesale market to increase the amount of money going to the charity—and the tax savings for the donor are increased as well.

The “Careb” is a beautiful Custom Trawler, donated in Washington, North Carolina, and transported by Action Donation Services down through the Chesapeake Bay to Yorktown, VA where the renovations were completed. It was then sold to provide many more years of fishing for a new owner. The sale of this donation helped to provide funds for ocean conservation and boater safety—and gave the owner an opportunity to claim a significant tax deduction.

We Love to Accept Qualified Vessels of All Types

Jacksonville, Florida boat donationWe love to accept vessels of all types that will benefit our charities. Many of our competitors simply do not want to handle boat donations and do nothing of consequence to increase the value of such property.

This 2000 World Cat, donated in Jacksonville, Florida, and processed by us, once sold, brought much needed funds to the Jacksonville Humane Society and saved the lives of many abandoned pets.

When you donate a boat, we frequently make significant improvements to your donation whenever it makes economic sense and when such improvements will improve the vessels value. Action Donation Services also offers donors the opportunity to receive a partial cash payment for qualified high value donations in addition to receiving the possibility of a tax deduction.

Our team of experts is totally committed to providing customer satisfaction for every donor and to providing the greatest revenue possible for your selected charity, foundation, or church.
