Beyond the hands-on skills of sailing and woodworking, when you donate your boat you are helping create the building blocks of what we all hope to see in the world: Courage. Empathy. Resilience. Support youth programs and donate your boat today!

We are seeking contributions of vessels in excellent condition to resell for our fundraising purposes.

Your tax-deductible boat donation would help support the mission, programs and activities of the Northwest Maritime Center such as the Wooden Boat Festival, Race to Alaska, and the educational programs for young students and professional mariners alike.

We are seeking boats with excellent resale value, few needed repairs, and an excellent track record for cruising, ideally with a market value of over $10,000.  We are not currently seeking donations of vessels to be used in our programs.

If you have a boat you believe would be a good candidate for a tax-deductible donation to be sold to support NWMC programs, please send a short description and a few photos to 

Small craft in good condition, including skiffs, kayaks, canoes, etc. may be accepted as tax-deductible donations to Marine Thrift, space permitting.

Northwest Maritime Center (FEIN # 91-1931643) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
