The Penobscot Bay YMCA’s 13th annual Ned Kyle Boat Auction is scheduled for Saturday, June 12.

The YMCA is looking for new or old boats (sail, power, dinghy, kayak, canoe, skiffs, rowing shells, surf boards, and just about anything that floats) or marine items that individuals would like to donate. Someone from the YMCA will stop by and make sure it is suitable, and arrange for transportation at no expense to the donor.

The major fundraising event provides support for the YMCA Scholarship Program. This year’s auction will continue to provide much-needed support for the YMCA Summer Camp children and families as well as program participants. Membership and programs are open to everyone regardless of ethnicity, religion, age, place of residence or financial capacity.

The YMCA said the boat auction’s success is due mainly to boat donations by private owners and through personal referrals. The YMCA will pay a 10 percent finder’s fee (defined as 10 percent of the actual selling price) to anyone who helps locate a boat that is donated to the boat auction. The boat owner can claim the selling price as a tax deduction.

To donate a boat or for more information, call Marcia Roberts at the Penobscot Bay YMCA at 236-3375 or e-mail
