If you're really interested in getting a tax write off for your boat...sell it and donate the proceeds... that will give you a much bigger tax write off than donating it...as the charity will probably not get much for it. Also, many of the organizations that ask you to donate a boat/car/rv will take a majority of the money from the sale as part of their operating costs... few of the donate a vehicle charities are actually run by the charity in question, and little of the actual proceeds goes to actually helping the charity.

There are several organizations that would fix her and sail her, but most are fairly particular about what boats they do this with. It would help if you said what the particular 35' is.
