The Downtown Sailing Center accepts donations of certain boats which can be used in our programs. There is a significant tax advantage to donating a boat to a charitable organization like the DSC that uses the donated boat in its programs, rather than one that merely sells it immediately upon receipt. For more information on donating a boat, please click here. In addition to being used, these boats are cleaned up, repaired and updated. After several seasons of use, we often offer these boats for sale. The following is a list of boats we currently have available. Check back periodically to see other boats as they become available.
