Thanks to Charlie Nicklaus at C. Nicklaus Starling & Associates for joining the AMIkids Yacht Donation family. 

Charlie is a Co-Founder at C. Nicklaus Starling & Associates and recently facilitated the donation of two custom express boats in favor of AMIkids' mission: 'Boova' and 'How Bout It'.

BooVA is a Steve French design built by Glenn Bradley. She is a piece of art rigged and equipped to fish hard while keeping all on board comfortable.

How Bout It is an impeccably finished  43'cold-molded hull, equipped with the best modern-day equipment and built by Cinco Boatworks, Wood Parker, IV, a 3rd generation Harker's Island, NC-born boat builder.

Both sportfish boats were delivered in 2017 and are equipped with Outboard Four-Stroke Yamaha F350's.

AMIkids will be performing improvements to the boats in the upcoming weeks. Once finished, these sportfishes will be available for lease with interest-free terms to qualified individuals. All the proceeds from these contributions will help support behavioral health, education, and treatment services for over 10,000 vulnerable youth in 9 states over the next three years or more.

Thanks to Charlie, his firm, and the generous donors of these vessels. AMIkids can help at-risk youth separate a troubled past from a bright future in 212 counties through your committed effort.
