Hurricane Dorian: Boaters For The Bahamas

Boat Trader is dedicated to helping our friends in the Bahamas following the impact of Hurricane Dorian. This record-breaking storm leveled entire towns and left an estimated 76,000 people homeless and in need of assistance in the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama Island.

Thousands of boaters around the area have pitched in to help and we’re currently working with charities and non-profits to help deliver life-saving aid, supplies, equipment and vital resources for disaster relief work.
