Thinking of selling your small yacht and buying a larger vessel? If so, consider putting the smaller yacht to good use by donating it to charity. At Veteran Car Donations, we help former military personnel and their families get back on their feet through our yacht donation programs. We serve the entire Jacksonville metro area, including nearby communities such as Neptune Beach, Nocatee, Orange Park, Sawgrass and Springfield.
Yacht donation is often a better way to get rid of your vessel rather than selling it. This is because you wonâ€™t have to go through the hassles of selling the yacht, including posting ads, dealing with a broker or haggling with prospective buyers. Best of all, youâ€™ll not only be doing good for the Jacksonville community, but this philanthropic route also allows you to receive a maximized tax deduction and free towing services.Â
When you kindly provide a vessel to us, youâ€™ll help provide crucial support to the brave men and women who served our country. Our donation process and simple and quick, as we strive to streamline the experience. Weâ€™ll even complete all the paperwork for you. What types of seacraft can be donated? We accept yachts from the most popular brands, including Azimut, Hatteras, Prestige, Sea Ray and Viking.

Donate to Veteran Car Donations Today
Our former servicemen and servicewomen have sacrificed so much for our country, and we are proud to help them overcome the difficulties they face and build new lives after service. You can give them hope, too, when you generously donate a yacht to our program.Â
How does the process work? Weâ€™ll auction off your vessel and use the proceeds to support several nonprofit veteran organizations. These organizations â€” including American Freedom Foundation, Vets4Warriors and others â€” then provide our nationâ€™s heroes with educational opportunities, housing, job training, transitioning assistance and more.Â
