Buy a boat, help protect coastal carnivores

We are selling Tooth and Nail, a beautiful sailboat that has been donated to us.

We have a fantastic opportunity for you to own a beautiful sailboat while supporting the conservation of wildlife at the same time. Tooth and Nail was donated to us by the family of the late Ronald Martin. Ronald and his family have been longtime supporters of Raincoast.

Ron loved to sail Tooth and Nail as much as he loved our beautiful coast. Together they circumnavigated Vancouver Island several times, circumnavigated Haida Gwaii and sailed throughout Southeast Alaska. He also raced her extensively.

Boat Specifications

Builder: C and C yachts
Model: C and C 29 Mk 1
Year built: 1978
Includes an extensive inventory of high quality sails

$15,000

The family has asked that the proceeds of the sale go towards the purchase of the hunting tenure for the Kitlope valley. So we are offering this amazing deal to our supporters first.

This generous gift will move us closer to ending trophy hunting in this stunning place.

Become a Raincoaster

Giving to Raincoast enables you to protect what you love most.

For 25 years, Raincoast has been furthering biodiversity conservation in BC. Thanks to your generous donations, among many other accomplishments, we have been able to end commercial trophy hunting of large carnivores in over 38,000 square kilometers of the Great Bear Rainforest, begin acquiring forest land in order to protect threatened Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems, aid recovery of endangered Southern Resident killer whales by restoring Chinook salmon habitat, and establish a university research lab dedicated to applied conservation science. Strong partnerships are integral to our success.

Our efforts need to be maintained and advanced, now more than ever. As the biodiversity and climate crises collide, your support allows us to continue to make tangible conservation gains. 

Biodiversity protection is the most important gift we can give the next generation. Join us as a Raincoaster today!
