Yacht Donation Services and Information

Donating to charity is often a better choice than selling your vessel.

Are you having trouble selling your vessel?

Is the value of your vessel greater than $100,000? Did you know less than 5% of all yachts listed actually sell within the first two years?

Many times, donating a vessel is far more beneficial than actually going through the hassles of selling the vessel!

We specialize in maximizing the legal tax savings that a donor may receive.

This beautiful Jefferson 46 Sundeck was donated to Clearwater Marine Aquarium (home of “Winter” and “Hope”) and helped fund their amazing rescue, rehabilitation, and release.

Consider donating your vessel to one of our qualified client charities and claim the maximum legal tax deduction and possibly a partial cash payment.


IRS Tax Deduction Based on Full Survey Value of Your Vessel May Be Possible

Typical yacht donation processed by Action Donation.If you have a qualified donation, we will explain the Action Donation Services GuaranteeSM, which assures the donor that the program meets the requirements of the Internal Revenue Service. Our program assures the donor that they can claim 100% of the gross sale price or the full survey value of the vessel depending on the program selected.

Unlike other donation services or charities that limit your deduction to the amount the vessel brings at auction—usually a mere fraction of full appraised value—the Action Donation Services Tax Advantage ProgramSM maximizes the value of your donation and guarantees that you may claim the maximum legal tax deduction based on the full survey value of your vessel at the time of donation.

Why Action Donation Services®?

Action Donation Services® is singularly capable of maximizing your tax deduction for donation of your vessel. Our Action Donation Services Tax Advantage ProgramSM is unique because we have the worldwide capability to facilitate and completely renovate any yacht or ship. We also guarantee your donated vessel will be retained by a qualified and relevant charity for the sufficient time period to meet IRS requirements, allowing you to claim the maximum legal tax deduction based on the survey value of your vessel at the time of donation.
