Tired of paying for boat insurance on your yacht that you barely use? If so, consider making a yacht donation to Veteran Car Donations. When you generously provide a vessel to our donation program, youâ€™ll help give former U.S. military servicemen and servicewomen in the Tampa area the assistance they need. We accept the most popular yacht brands, including Azimut, Hatteras, Luhrs, Prestige, Sea Ray, Tiara and Viking.
Donating a yacht to charity is often a better option than selling it. Instead of having to deal with the hassles of advertisements or selling through a broker, youâ€™ll immediately get your vessel off your hands. Moreover, youâ€™ll save money on boat insurance, storage and maintenance. Youâ€™ll receive other perks, too, such as the ability to reduce your taxable income.Â
We serve the entire Tampa metro area, including nearby communities such as Cheval, Citrus Park, East Lake, Keystone, Land Oâ€™ Lakes, Oldsmar, Palm Harbor, Valrico, Wesley Chapel and Westchase.

Why Choose Veteran Car Donations?
Florida is ranked the No. 1 veteran-friendly state in the nation. Thereâ€™s a good support system for this group, and Veteran Car Donations also strives to support these veterans with our donation program for yachts.Â
When you donate a vessel to us, we auction it off and use the proceeds to support our veteran nonprofit organizations. These include the American Freedom Foundation, Heroes on the Water and Vets4Warriors, among others. These organizations are just as passionate about helping our nationâ€™s heroes as we are. Through these programs, veterans and their families can receive the support and care they need. This may include grief counseling, job training, transitioning assistance and more.Â
