Jim Wallace at IYC recently facilitated the donation of "Any Excuse" a Hatteras 52' Sport Deck Motor Yacht.

Any Excuse 52' 1998 Hatteras Sport Deck Motor Yacht

Any excuse is in great condition. Her fiberglass hull is in great shape. Twin Diesel Caterpillar 3408 with 800 hp each and a sound insulated 20KW Onan genset provide ample power to cruise at 20 knots, run her Cursair A/C, multiple electronics, pumps, stabilizer system and charge 4 battery banks. Any Excuse has capacity for nearly 1000 gallons of diesel and 200 gallons of fresh water.

Material improvements will include factory recommended service to main engines and generator, work on the running gear including replacing the cutlass bearing and having the shafts and propellers trued. She will also receive renewed bottom coating. "Any Excuse" will be available for lease soon. For more information contact Jim Wallace.

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. 

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

"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
