Scrap a Motorboat News
Boatbreakers pride ourselves on covering the whole of the UK. In the last few weeks we have been from Inverness to Penzance. This time we were slightly closer to home to provide a boat disposal solution in Cambridgeshire.
Our most recent boat in for disposal was a storm damaged Wellcraft 192 from Poole. The Wellcraft speedboat was caught in stormy conditions and it seems to have flooded before sinking on her mooring.
Boatbreakers cover the whole of the UK and Ireland. We've spent many years plucking boats out of tricky coastal locations across the British Isles. End of life boat disposal always throws up logistical challenges as the boats are usually damaged or wrecked.
The latest boat to roll into the yard is a timely reminder of the damage that fire can do. Before the blaze the boat was a working Sunseeker 36 and would have been worth around £50,000.
One of the perks of collecting boats from all over the country is that we get to visit some great places and meet some lovely people. Last week we were asked to come and collect an old Shetland from Milton Keynes. All we knew about her was that the Suzuki engine was probably dead and she’d been moored at the end of the garden for a number of years without any use.
There's nothing like a long haul road trip to welcome a team member back from a holiday. With Luke still enjoying the jet lag that follows a 12 and a half hour flight we set off at 5am and headed north for Scarborough to collect a Scrap Boat.
