Founded in 2003, Nautical Donations, Inc. is a 501(c)3 charity that supports nautically related non-profits in the greater Chicago area through the sale of donated boats and marine equipment. We are dedicated to supporting local nautical organizations that provide boating services and educational opportunities to the young and disadvantaged.

Nautical Donations sells donated boats and equipment throughout the year at bargain basement prices. Click our BUY tab for links to our inventory of boats and equipment available for sale.

Donating to Nautical Donations is a very simple process and all donors can benefit from receiving a tax deduction for their contributions. You can now also contribute to Nautical Donations, at no cost to yourself, with Amazon Smile.

You can also contribute to Chicago’s nautical community and gain valuable skills in the process by volunteering your time.

Contact us today to schedule a time to come down and see us!

Nautical Donations, Inc. is entirely Chicago-owned and operated.


We are always looking for volunteers to help make Nautical Donations the success it is! Sign up now to join this great group of people.

Currently the Chicago Sea Scouts are looking to build a fleet of J24s with which their scouts can learn to sail and compete. Please let us know if you have a J24 that you wish to donate for this great cause.
