Abandoned Boats

As I was writing this post we actually had a fresh enquiry in that was exactly what this post is about. A boat in a marina near London has clearly been left un-maintained for too long and has now started to sink. This has made a tricky boat removal even trickier as now the boat has to be pumped out and re-floated.

We are here to help you arrange the removal of abandoned boats. Whether they are in a marina, on a mooring, on your driveway or maybe in a farmer’s field somewhere, we can help you remove abandoned boats from anywhere in the UK or mainland Europe.

Abandoned boats can not only become an eyesore but also a potential hazard both in the water and on land. If a boat is left abandoned on its mooring it may eventually come loose in stormy conditions and cause damage to any surrounding boats. If it then sinks it would become a navigational and environmental hazard. We have dive teams on standby ready to come and re-float the stricken vessel, so don’t panic!

Here at Boatbreakers we want to avoid any boat getting to the point where it becomes a problem for other boat owners. Much like being hit by an un-insured driver in a car it’d be the innocent party who’d foot the bill for the damage caused.

So if you’re a boatyard, marina or reluctant boat owner. Give us a call on 023 9298 4666 and arrange for our team to come and remove the abandoned boat from your premises. This will not only remove the risk of the boat becoming a problem to its surroundings but also free up space to store new boats owned by reliable customers.

By |February 26th, 2021|Abandoned Boats, Portfolio, Scrap a Boat, Scrap a Yacht|

Our Boatbreakers team were back out on the water in Portsmouth Harbour last week. We had received a call from a local sailing club to ask us to remove an abandoned boat from their moorings.

    Hello, a good friend of mine is looking for an old fishing boat, with engine(s), abandoned,
    but in restorable condition..! 50 foot +, wooden/steel hull…

    As we live in Inverness and Nairn area, finding one along the many bays of the adjacent
    Moray Firth ( South coast ) towards Peterhead would be nice…?

    If you know of any likely ones, let me know by email please..?

    Thanks, Brian Malley, Inverness, 23/1/2022 pm.

    Hi, do you ever get asked to remove boats that are genuinely useable. Initiall I am looking for something on or over 30ft long. I’m even considering a yacht although I have never sailed a yacht before, but I have found some local clubs who do RYA training sessions, otherwise a seagoing cruiser that is not powered by one of those 6 litre American V8 petrol guzzlers. Please contact me if I fall into your possible acquisitions. Thank you David Pearson.
