Boatstobuy.com, an online portal dedicated to helping boaters sell their boats, entered into a preferred provider agreement with the Massachusetts Maritime Academy

Under the terms of the agreement, the maritime academy's department of yacht and boat donations will utilize Boatstobuy.com to list appropriate maritime donations and inventories.

In addition to supporting the efforts of its competitive sailing teams, proceeds from the maritime academy's yacht and boat donation program have financed numerous campus projects.

"The ability to accurately and securely update and access inventory listings, internally and externally, has become increasingly critical to the continued success of our yacht and boat donation program, not only in terms of our competitive sailing teams, but also to the college as a whole," said Richard "Chuck" Fontaine, the maritime academy's director of yacht and boat donations and sailing program director.

"The easy-to-use boatstobuy.com portal solution will provide us with this much-needed capability, thereby increasing the reach and productivity of our major gift efforts. We are delighted to have boatstobuy.com as a preferred supplier," he added.
