Are You No Longer Getting Anything of Value Out of That Vessel?

Unlike motor vehicles that are used for regular commutes, boats are not common properties for most Americans. They are often seen as leisure vehicles rather than essential means of transport. That’s why parting ways with a worn-out boat may not be as hard as saying goodbye to an old car that has served you well for years.

If you own an old boat and feel like you’re no longer getting anything valuable out of it, it’s time to seriously think of retiring it. Here are tell-tale signs that it is time to get rid of your boat:

1. Age

Well-maintained boats can last from five to 50 years, depending on usage and make. However, most boats reach the end of their lifespan after accumulating 1,500 to 2,000 hours. If your boat has reached this range, don’t be surprised if its engine starts to break down.

2. Condition

If you have not properly maintained your boat, you may have to spend a lot of money to repair it, which may not be worth the benefits you’ll get from it.

3. Value

The value of your boat depends on its overall condition and that of the market. When there is high demand, boats tend to hold their value better. Conversely, in a saturated market, boats devalue more quickly. If the market is favorable, it might be wise to let go of your boat sooner rather than later.

4. Budget

If you’re already facing financial challenges, the costs of insurance, storage, maintenance, and repairs for an old boat may be too much to bear. Letting go of the boat can help save on these expenses.


A Meaningful Use for Your Old Boat

Hanging onto a rusty and worn-out boat will only drain your finances and give you endless headaches. Instead of keeping it for no good reason, you can use it to serve a worthy cause by donating it to Breast Cancer Car Donations. When you do that, you’ll contribute to saving the lives of breast cancer sufferers in your local community.

We will auction your vessel, with the proceeds going to our breast cancer-focused charity partners. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations use the funding to provide financial assistance to uninsured and underprivileged breast cancer patients. The assistance covers their various expenses, such as treatments, doctor consultations, hospital fees, medications, follow-up care, and essential healthcare services.

Additionally, our charity partners ensure that disadvantaged individuals have easy access to local healthcare facilities for their free breast cancer screenings and diagnoses. They also provide essential follow-up care for breast cancer survivors. Furthermore, they use the funding to promote breast cancer awareness, provide prevention education, and offer counseling services to the public.

Your boat donation can help provide all these life-saving services to indigent women in your area who are fighting off breast cancer.

In return for your donation, you’ll be entitled to claim the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season. We’ll provide you with a 100% tax-deductible sales receipt after your boat is sold at auction.

We also offer free professional towing services anywhere in the United States, and our donation experts will handle all the necessary paperwork.

More valuable than these material perks, you’ll experience the satisfaction of making a charitable act that helps save lives.

We accept nearly all types of vehicles, including those in need of extensive work. Click here to learn more about what you can donate besides boats.
