Everywhere you look online you can find people trying to give boats away for free. But is there really such thing as a free boat?
The Boatbreakers team were in south wales to collect and scrap a sunken boat. It had gone down near Pontypool (north of Newport) and had been recovered to a nearby slipway.
It's always a shame when we get asked to scrap a boat that would have been really nice in her day. We were contact a few months back by the owner of a Seamaster 30 at Thornham Marina.
Yacht Disposal is always a shame when the we can see what a nice boat it once was. Sadly this latest Contest 29 fin keel yacht was just too far gone.
Our latest boat clearance was a Coronet 27 Sea Farer from a garden in Hayling Island. The boat had been sat on the front garden of a property that had recently been renovated.
Our Boatbreakers boat disposal team had another abandoned boat to collect. She was one of the messiest boat's we've ever collected. In all of our years boat breaking we have removed some really messy boats.
Boats that end up in our boat scrapyard aren't always coming from marinas and yards. The boat disposal team are frequently called to help clear boats from gardens and private property.
