AMIkids would like to thank Marlow Marine Sales, Kathy Quam, and RuthAnn Tucker for facilitating the donation of the 67' 2008 Lyman-Morse "Sweetie" and the 53' 2006 Marlow "Mermaid." 

These two yachts were donated days apart through the Sneed Island builder and are currently undergoing improvements in the greater Tampa Bay region. 


For information about leasing these vessels, please contact the brokers. Kathy Quam is the central agent for the 67' 2008 Lyman-Morse, RuthAnn Tucker represents the 53' 2006 Marlow.

Once these donated yachts are leased from AMIkids by a qualified individual, the proceeds will help support 44 programs in 9 states that serve close to 5,000 youth every year. 

AMIkids is the go-to team for yacht donations. Their program is designed to follow strict protocol to protect the donor following current IRS guidelines all the while utilizing the donated proceeds for youth educational schooling throughout the country. – Lon McCloskey, Yacht Sales Professional       

In every instance, AMIkids has handled my clients’ donations in a very professional manner and with the donors’ best interest in mind. I recommend AMIkids and nobody else. With AMIkids, my clients come away with the great feeling that they have helped make a difference in troubled kids lives! – Jud Black, Bluewater Yacht Sales Bluewater Yacht Sales

"We always knew about AMIkids, but in 2019 I became involved in a transaction and took an interest to learn about the work various schools do. It struck me —supporting AMIkids is a way in which I can pay-back.

I got involved in helping kids in rough environments make better choices and get on a better route to success. I was happy to be invited to join the board of trustees and help contribute in the ways that I can."

— Neil Emmott, Partner at Superyacht Sales and Charter
