BOAT SALES 2018
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. 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, 9-5pm) or email the director at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please leave name, phone and best time to call – due to spammers, we don’t reply to emails directly. Thanks!

The O’Day 34 design concept was aimed at moderate sailing performance and spacious accommodations. The deep draft keel is a moderated aspect fin for good windward performance, and rudder is large, providing for good directional control.
The interior layout is thoughtful and practical. The cabin has 6’2″ of headroom. There is a V-berth cabin forward followed by head to port and hanging lockers to the starboard. There are port and starboard settees in the main saloon with a centerline drop-leaf table, followed by a starboard side quarter berth and navigations station and port side U-shaped galley.
