Surrendered & Abandoned Vessel Exchange (SAVE) Program
Need to surrender your vessel?

The Surrendered and Abandoned Vessel Exchange (SAVE) program provides an alternative for boat owners to surrender unwanted recreational vessels to participating local public agencies, in lieu of abandonment. The Port District currently has grant funding available and is accepting a limited number of vessels to participate in the program. The following criteria apply:

  • Only recreational vessels are eligible.
  • Commercial vessels are not eligible.
  • Vessel can be berthed in the water or brought to the harbor via trailer.
  • Vessel does not have to be currently registered.
  • Registered vessel owner must be present at time of turn-in.

For additional information on this no-cost disposal program, please contact Assistant Harbormaster Sean Rothwell at (831) 475-6161 or srothwell@santacruzharbor.org.
