Maritime Museum Seeking Boat Donations
Contributions support museum operations and finances
KINGSTON, N.Y. – Hudson River Maritime Museum is seeking donations of boats. The museum’s donation program provides an opportunity for boat owners who seek a meaningful future for their vessel. Donations to the museum are hassle-free, tax deductible, and provide new life and purpose for beloved vessels.
Boat donations contribute to HRMM’s programs in a number of ways. In 2017, the museum launched Riverport Sailing and Rowing School with over a dozen donated sailboats and safety boats. The school provides an invaluable service to youth and adults in the Hudson Valley with top-of-the-line sailing and rowing education on the Hudson River. Depending on a vessel's make and condition, it may be used during classes at the museum's wooden boat school to teach youth and adult students traditional woodworking skills. Other boats may be sold--with 100% of proceeds benefiting the museum's educational programs.
People who are interested in donating a boat to the museum can complete a simple electronic form available on the museum’s website at www.hrmm.org/boat-donations and a representative from the museum will be in touch.
