Vessel Donation Programs

Purchase a Yacht!

Have you considered purchasing a yacht through a  501C3 Yacht Donation Service Program? There are many yachts available for sale through these programs and Nicholson has the experience and expertise to match you with the right one. Also, in purchasing one of these yachts, you have the satisfaction of knowing that the proceeds will go to a maritime related non-profit group. Nicholson Yachts is an agent for Block Island Maritime Funding, which supports several marine non-profit groups.  

Sell a Yacht!

Today, many yacht owners place their boats in a yacht donation program.  They decide that a tax deductible donation is the best choice and are satisfied that the proceeds of the sale will go to one of the many maritime related non-profit groups.
Over the past few years Nicholson has successfully matched yacht owners and buyers, resulting in support to groups such as the nonprofit Oliver Hazard Perry tall ship, Sail Newport, and the Maine Maritime Museum.

Non-Profit Groups

These maritime related non-profit groups concentrate on education for youth. Many of our affiliated schools teach boating skills, while others concentrate on marine science, history, boatbuilding, and conservation. Many of these schools offer programs for adults as well. All of them are open to the public.
If you want more information, please contact Nicholson to find out if this could be the right choice for you.
