AMIkids Yacht Donation Program

6,000 Yachts, 50 years.

Closing the Decade: A Report on Yacht Donations

by Jorge Mahauad | Dec 18, 2020

As 2020 comes to a close, we would like to share our quinquennial report on yacht donations.

Starting in January 2021, we will be sending hard copies to our donors, lessees, and business partners. In the meantime, feel free to flip some pages digitally. 

Our yacht donation program would not exist without the support of our donors, lessees, and our yacht brokerage partners.

Special thanks to the firms and individuals whose notable vessel contributions helped our mission in 2020.

AMIkids is the go-to team for yacht donations. Their program is designed to follow strict protocol to protect the donor following current IRS guidelines all the while utilizing the donated proceeds for youth educational schooling throughout the country. – Lon McCloskey, Yacht Sales Professional       

In every instance, AMIkids has handled my clients’ donations in a very professional manner and with the donors’ best interest in mind. I recommend AMIkids and nobody else. With AMIkids, my clients come away with the great feeling that they have helped make a difference in troubled kids lives! – Jud Black, Bluewater Yacht Sales Bluewater Yacht Sales
We have been fortunate to have a relationship with AMIkids over several years and to be a part of what they accomplish so well. AMIkids motivates the community to give back and in doing so provides children and adults alike opportunities to share, learn, give and grow. We look forward to a lasting involvement with AMIkids! – Roy Merritt, Merritt’s Boat & Engine Works Brokerage Merritts Boat Brokerage
Thanks to our ongoing partnership with Yachting, AMIkids is able to spread more awareness about our programs and how the yachting community can help youth around the nation achieve a brighter tomorrow. – Michael Thornton, AMIkids, Inc.  -  Visit: Yachting.comYachting_Logo

"We always knew about AMIkids, but in 2019 I became involved in a transaction and took an interest to learn about the work various schools do. It struck me —supporting AMIkids is a way in which I can pay-back.

I got involved in helping kids in rough environments make better choices and get on a better route to success. I was happy to be invited to join the board of trustees and help contribute in the ways that I can."

— Neil Emmott, Partner at Superyacht Sales and Charter
