Yacht Donation Information

IRS Tax Deduction based on the Full Survey Value of your Vessel may be possible.

Donating a vessel to charity can often be a better choice than selling your vessel. Many prospective donors do not know it can be far more financially beneficial, and of course more rewarding, than actually going through the hassles of selling the vessel! 

Are you having trouble selling your vessel or yacht? Did you know less than 5% of all yachts listed actually sell within the first two years?      (Info for Yacht Brokers)

We are different.

Inclusive Adventures operates 74' M/V Possibilities II and 65' M/V Possibilities, both very unique, completely refit, fully wheelchair-accessible motor yachts. We have many volunteer Captains and Marine Engineers. We deeply understand the beauty and challenges of owning and maintaining a yacht. We are uniquely capable of maximizing the legal tax savings you may receive as our prospective donor!  You are welcome to get involved as much as you like or remain anonymous.

Please consider donating your vessel to Inclusive Adventures and claim the maximum legal tax deduction. Have a unique situation? Please share your story with us. In some high-value situations, a partial cash payment might even be possible.

Our Tax Advantage Donation Guarantee

We guarantee to meet the requirements of the Internal Revenue Service. Donors can choose to claim:

  • 100% of the FULL SURVEY VALUE of the vessel if qualified
  • 100% of the Gross Sale Price of the vessel

With most charities or donation services, your deduction is limited to the amount the vessel brings at auction, usually a mere fraction of the full appraised value. We uniquely maximize the value of your donation and GUARANTEE that you may claim the maximum legal tax deduction based on the FULL SURVEY VALUE of your vessel at the time of donation.

Inclusive Adventures is singularly capable of maximizing your tax deduction for the donation of your vessel. We have worldwide capability with partners to facilitate and completely renovate any yacht or ship. We also guarantee your donated vessel will be retained by charity for a sufficient time 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.

We believe in answering potential donation questions ourselves personally. Potential donors may want to be reassured of the process and logistics, or reasonably know more about us and how the resources will be utilized.

See What Yacht and Yacht Brokers and Donors are Saying About The Donation Option

Donated Hatteras Yacht

“I was in the process of selling my beautiful Hatteras 45 that I had maintained to a very high standard. The broker I had listed with took it out on a sea trial and the port engine blew. You can imagine my dismay. Not only was the boat not going to sell, I was looking at a huge repair expense.

I found Action Donation Services. I explained what happened and they were still willing to accept the vessel. They immediately took possession of the vessel. They completed approximately $70,000 in necessary repairs, and because of that, I was able to realize the full appraised value as a write off on my taxes. No other facilitating company would invest like that in a donated vessel. Not only did I save tens of thousands of dollars in repairs, I got a significant tax write off. Action Donation does it right! Thank you for your time and effort.” – ADS ID# 0516-11965, Long Beach, CA. –

Yacht brokers love Action Donation

“Action Donation Services is very professional and prompt. They will go the extra mile for their donors and charities, including transporting vessels hundreds of miles to make sure they are in the correct market. They will perform the necessary repairs to make sure they are retail ready and it makes our job of selling them that much easier. We look forward to continuing to work with Action Donation Services.”
– Bart White, Sales Brokerage Mgr., Dare Marine & Yacht Sales, Yorktown, VA –



“As a broker for Camper and Nicholsons in Palm Beach, FL, I had the pleasure of working with Action Donation Services. They are honest and have integrity in all that they do, and Action is definitely what they are all about. In a matter of a few days, they were able to secure the donation of a 74 Hatteras in Catawba Is, OH on Lake Erie, get it inspected and splashed, secure a crew, and transport the vessel through the Erie Canal with barely hours to spare before the canal was closed down for the entire winter season. By doing this, the vessel wasn’t landlocked for the entire winter season but down in sunny So. Florida where we could easily sell such a desirable vessel, not being limited by the season.

They accepted my recommendations regarding the vessel, and as a result I could quickly sell this vessel for more than the surveyed value especially after Action Donation Services’ investment in suggested repairs. Their perseverance and dedication allowed the donor to get a higher tax right off and more money to the local charity, Sea to Shore Alliance, whose mission is to protect our Manatees and our most endangered Right Whales. It was a phenomenal win-win-win. I was able to sell a quality yacht, the donor was able to receive a higher tax deduction, and, most importantly, our local charity got much needed funds. I would happily work with Action Donation Services again.” – Michael Rafferty – Camper & Nicholsons USA
