Event has passed

ROCKPORT — This year on Saturday, June 4, the Penobscot Bay YMCA will hold its annual Boat Auction at the Y in Rockport. This major fundraising event helps keep the cost of summer camp affordable to all participants, including scholarships for those families who need it the most.

This year’s auction will feature auctioneer John Bottero along with a Nautical Yard Sale, Summer Silent Auction, Paddleboard Raffle, and concessions. The Nautical Yard Sale will begin at 8 a.m., Boat Auction registration will begin at 9:30 a.m., and the Auction will start at 10:30 a.m.

There’s still time to donate boats of all types – sail, power, dinghy, kayak, canoe, skiffs, rowing shells, surf boards and old sails that individuals would like to donate as a tax write-off. Someone from the Y will stop by and make sure it is suitable, and arrange for transportation at no expense to the donor. Boat owners can claim the selling price as a tax deduction.

Event Sponsors include RE/MAX Jaret & Cohn, Chater’s Boatyard, Journey’s End Marina, Lyman Morse Boatbuilding, Front Street Shipyard, Prock Marine, and Maine Coast Construction.


With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive. For more information please call Marcia Roberts, Director of Development at the Y @ 236-3375, ext. 209.
