There are lots of different kinds of boats available and each has its challenges when it comes to disposal and recycling.
These pages are designed to help you identify the type of boat you have and what you need to know in order to get it ready for disposal.
We class a yacht as a sailing boat usually with mast and a keel/keels. Some yachts will come with engines (Inboard or outboard) and some don’t.
We class a Motorboat as one of the following, Fishing boat, River Cruiser, Speed Boat, Cabin Cruiser, Ribs, Commercial Boat and Work Boats. As a rule it’s anything above 18ft that isn’t a yacht.
We class a narrowboat as 7ft wide and up to 70ft long barge that are common across the inland waterways in the UK. Usually made of Steel but sometimes in Wood.
We class a Small Boat as anything up to 17ft. This can be a yacht or a motorboat.

Yacht, Motor Boat, Narrow boat and Ship Breaking, Disposal and Vessel Recycling Services
Decaying, waterlogged and abandoned boats can cause pollution and damage the marine environment slowly releasing waste products like engine oil, diesel, petrol and human waste into the surrounding water. Even worse they can eventually sink and sit on the bottom causing a navigational hazard and become significantly more difficult to recover and re float.
Disposing of a boat can be a challenging task for an owner, marina or insurer but one call to Boatbreakers is all that is needed.
We specialise in yacht and motor boat removal and recovery for private and commercial owners, boatyards and insurance companies.
