Youth Sailing Foundation

Donate Boats

If you have a you have a sailboat or power boat that you no longer use, YSF is happy to sell the boat and provide you with tax appropriate thank you letter with accompanying IRS form. We use the proceeds to help fund our sailing programs offered free to the children of Indian River County. We will pick up your boat located in the Vero Beach area, clean and detail at our boatyard, and handle all the details of the selling process. We can sell larger boats located anywhere in the country without transporting them to Vero Beach.

Call Greg Gerber at 772-559-1968 or YSF at 772-492-3243 for more information about boat donations.
