Well I guess legit is a debatable term for some, but both Arc and Goodwill take boats.

Those are the two I would suggest.

I believe the OP is asking because there are several organizations that would accept cars, flip them onto a used car lot, and pay the charity around a hundred bucks because their accounting system would organize their costs to pay the executives of the organization a large "incentive" based off the car value. Effectively this funnels the vast majority of the money away from the charity. I would hate to find out I had donated a very valuable asset only to have my donation being handled in that manner.
