Transferring a watercraft is more difficult than simply writing a check or donating furniture to charity. Charity Boats understands the complexities of transferring both USCG documented boats and transferring boat with state titles and registrations. We also understand the complexities of boats being picked up from storage yards, marinas and private residences. We will do our utmost to make sure the donation process is as smooth as possible. Charity Boats will work to transfer your vessel with a minimum amount of hassle.Whether you donate speedboats, donate sailboats, donate schooners, donate yachts, donate canoes, donate dinghy dory’s, donate johnboats, donate paddleboats, donate skiffs, donate motorboats, donate houseboats, donate tugs, donate shrimpers, donate whalers, etc. there is no better charity to give your watercraft to than Charity Boats. We do our best with every donation, no matter what is presented to us.
Charity Boats is aware that many charitable organizations depend on the generosity of their donors to fund their programs. Most organizations are not equipped for the complications that go along with the complex transfer of motorized vessels. We have processed thousands of boats that include sailboats, sport fish, yachts and ski boats. We also handle boats that are smaller as well, including small bass fishing boats, personal watercraft and aluminum row boats. We accept watercraft of all shapes and sizes because we specialize in donations of boats. There is never any out of pocket cost to our donors for pick-up of your watercraft or boat trailer. We appreciate our donors and we do our best to assist them through the process.Title transfers and lien releases can be complex. We can help you understand these documents and process them with you at the Coast Guard documentation center. We can help you find the forms and apply for duplicate titles and registrations.
