Stolen Coach Boat


For the past 6 years we have been fundraising to buy a rigid inflatable coach boat and last summer we finally raised enough and these weekend (May 25th)  IT WAS STOLEN!  So upsetting.

It was stolen form the Portsmouth Olympic Harbour.

We need you help to find our coach boat.  See photo above and below.  It was a 550 Zodiac Pro  with a 115hp  Evinrude outboard. It is doubtful that it will be returned so we are also seeking tax deductible donations to help raise money for the purchase of a replacement which is estimated at $15,0000= $20,000 for a used boat of similar quality. Our boat was a 2020 hull with new inflatable tubes in 2021 and a 2007 engine.

Able Sail Kingston has been operating an adapted sailing program for people with disabilities at Kingston Yacht Club since 2002. Even those with extremely limited mobility can sail on an equal basis with other sailors by using our specially designed and adapted boats: the Martin 16 for single-handed sailing, and the Sonar for crews of up to six people. Our boats are completely safe, and cannot capsize or sink. The controls are for people who are unable to move about as they would in other sailboats. As one of our sailors said, “the only time I forget I can’t walk is when I’m dreaming or sailing.”

Able Sail Kingston appreciates the generosity of individuals who believe in our program and would like to make a tax deductible charity donation.  Thank you for your support.
