Legacy Planning
Start planning your legacy by donating a home or yacht to SailFuture.

Boats and properties donated to SailFuture are used in our programs, not re-sold for cash flow. They become the platforms that our young people need to begin changing their lives.

Since 2014, SailFuture has taken in more than 10 major boat and property donations, including waterfront property, land in downtown St. Petersburg, and sailing yachts.

Each of these gifts allowed us to grow and expand, serving more at-risk teens and building a legacy around our benefactors gift.

When it came time to move on, he chose to start his legacy planning by donating the yacht to SailFuture.

Today, hundreds of students experience his same love for the ocean, and learned responsibility, science, and teamwork by sailing on board ‘Defy the Odds.’
