50' 2005 Ocean Supersport Leased

by Jorge Mahauad | Nov 05, 2019

In early October, Jim Kelly at Grande Yachts International facilitated the donation of a 50' 2005 Ocean Supersport

50' 2005 Ocean Super Sport

We owned Marquesa III for a little over a month. She is now leased and has been delivered to her new handler. 

During the time we owned her, we worked on the following material improvements. 

- Repaired main engines and generators according to survey recommendations;
- Serviced and repaired all seacocks and through-hull fittings;
- Replaced and upgraded all main engine raw intake hoses and clamps; 
- Reconditioned and updated her running gear; 
- Applied prop speed to all running gear; and 
- Renewed the bottom protection coatings. 


George Beck from HMY represented the buyer.

This 50' 2005 Ocean Supersport is another success story for the AMIkids Yacht Donation Program. Our yacht donors benefit from reduced holding costs and obtain a reasonable tax deduction from a safe, reputable charity. 

The process is extremely convenient for everyone and provides brokers with competitively priced inventory and refreshed listings with interest-free lease opportunities.

All proceeds support the AMIkids mission to help youth develop into responsible and productive citizens. In doing so, we help protect public safety and positively impact youth and their families by helping them separate a troubled past from a bright future. 

Why Donate?

Vessel donation is a powerful and safe alternative for charitable yacht owners. The process is simple, convenient and expeditious. 

Every vessel contribution supports our mission to help at-risk youth separate a troubled past from a bright future. AMIkids is a nationally recognized nonprofit with a pristine track record of yacht donations for nearly 50 years.
