Boat Sales in 2017


Please consider donating your boat to the Reedville Fishermen’s Museum!
Sales of your donated boats are of vital assistance to the Museum!


Replace the unpleasant prospect of marketing your boat with the gratifying knowledge that the gift of your boat to the Museum will work for you and your community by strengthening the educational and preservation programs here at the RFM.


The Museum is a fully certified not-for-profit organization under section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  It is funded by gifts and grants from its supporters. A form of support that appeals particularly to some is the donation of a boat to the Museum. Such “in-kind” contributions may offer the donor the advantages of an income tax deduction for the market value of the boat. A donation demands much less of the donor’s time and emotions than the usual brokerage procedure. All types of boats – traditional or modern, work or pleasure, sail or power, wood or other material – are eligible for this program.


The process is relatively simple, involving the exchange of ownership documents and a contract of acceptance. The donated boat will be sold through normal channels or at auction, using the proceeds for museum operation or endowment.


Boats that are particular examples of traditional designs may be retained in the collection if the limited resources of the Museum are sufficient to maintain them in proper fashion. The Museum retains the right to decline a gift if, in its opinion, the condition of the boat is such that a buyer cannot be located with a reasonable effort.

Note: you may contact the Museum at 804.453.6529 during business hours (Mon-Fri, 9-5) or email the director at Please leave name, phone and best time to call – due to spammers, we don’t reply to emails directly.  Thanks!

ASKING $19,500



This is a beautiful hand-crafted Dory! Approximately 11’6″ long and has a 4′ beam. The builder passed away before completing it. It needs the brace to hold the mast upright. We have a sail, but it may not be the correct one. It also needs a center board if you want to sail it. It may need a gaff.  Needs brackets for the rudder on the boat.

It comes with two sets of oars (unmatched). The transom is cut to hold a motor; suggest that two HP would be about all you would need or electric. As this boats sits without any work, it is a beautifully crafted row boat.

Boat sits on a 4′ x 8′ tilting trailer. It is in excellent condition. Total length is 11.5′

Asking $550 for the boat and $450 for the trailer.
