Throughout the year, the Yacht & Boat Donations Program of Massachusetts Maritime Academy accepts donations of boat, trailers, engines, and other miscellaneous marine items.  Many of these donations are accepted “for sale”, which means that they are not used or improved by MMA, but simply sold to raise money, which supports scholarships, the Marine Department’s waterfront facilities, a fleet of nearly seventy training vessels, and the Otis ANGB boatyard.

Donated boats are sold by MMA via eBay and through our popular Sealed Bid Sale, typically held the weekend before Thanksgiving every year, at Joint Base Cape Cod (JBCC) in Falmouth, Massachusetts.

THE 2018 MMA SEALED BID SALE is being held on November 17 and 18, 1000-1600 at JBCC Falmouth Gate off Route 151.  Sealed Bids will be accepted at JBCC both days, as well until noon on November 19,  via: email (, fax (508-830-6449), and online (see link in white box on left).

Entry to the Sealed Bid Sale is by the FALMOUTH GATE ONLY - follow signs from the intersection of Route 151 and Sandwich Road in Falmouth.  You must present a government-issued photo ID in order to be admitted to JBCC.

After October 15, access to the JBCC storage facility is available ONLY on the Saturday and Sunday of the Sealed Bid Sale - November 17 and 18, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
