You have a sailboat that you want to divest yourself of but you simply do not have the time or inclination to sell it on your own. Do you list it with a broker and hope that you get a decent price, even after the commission fees? What you want to do is call Charity Boats and donate a sailboat instead. There are two main reasons why you should make a sailboat donation. First, you will likely receive a better value for it through a fair market tax deduction, which spells great savings for you come income tax time. And second, when you donate a sailboat, you are helping a variety of charitable organizations goals.
