We were recently contacted by an Insurance company and asked to get up to Birmingham as soon as possible as there was a boat taking on water fast that needed to be disposed of. As you can see from the pictures when we got to her she was starting to resemble a Submarine.
At Boatbreakers, we were recently asked to answer some questions from Asia Pacific Boating Magazine for an article they are writing about boat disposal and end of life boats. Below is a copy of the questions and our answers.
Boatbreakers may soon be involved in a British/French study in disposing of end of life boats. We were asked to write some text outlining what it is we do as a busniness. Whilst we wait to hear if the study will get the official go ahead we think the information in the statement might be interesting to read.
Harbours across the UK and Europe are inundated with abandoned yachts, according to new research. The European Union Boat Digest Project estimates that at least 6,600 and possibly as many as 23,600 boats are abandoned every year.
