    Name: 21st Annual Charity Boat Auction
    Date: September 1, 2018
    Time: 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum offers the opportunity to get a great deal on the boat of your dreams this Labor Day weekend during the 20th annual Charity Boat Auction on Saturday, September 2. More than 100 boats—ranging in size and performance from sailing dinghies to cabin cruisers, and everything in between—will be in the water and on land to be auctioned off to the highest bidders. 

    As an absolute auction, all boats will be sold the day of the event, with a title office set up at CBMM for ease of transfer. All boats must be removed by Monday, September 3.

    CBMM’s Charity Boat Donation Program Director Todd Taylor takes donations and resells boats throughout the year, holding aside some of the inventory for the annual auction. Taylor travels the east coast working with boat owners, yacht brokers, marinas, boatyards, and other donors and potential buyers wanting to support CBMM through boat donations and sales. In preparation for the annual auction, boat sales will be suspended on Sunday, July, 30, 2017.

    “100% of the revenue generated by the auction goes directly toward helping CBMM’s educational programs and restoring and preserving its historic structures and boats,” says Taylor. “Let us take an unused or unwanted boat off your hands, and you can receive a nice tax deduction. Each donated boat helps the museum do great things for the people we serve.”
