Boatbreakers had an interesting week as the team featured on Quest’s new series Scrap Kings for the first time. The new show aims to showcase different companies in the scrap business across the UK.
We should feature twice in the series as we were filmed crushing a number of boats on two separate shoots. Despite the obvious initial shock of seeing ourselves on TV we thought we came across ok as we tried to give some background on why we scrap boats.
The second episode we feature on is also an interesting watch as it really was a shame to scrap the boat that is featured. On the surface the classic wooden boat seemed to be in fairly good condition but there was more to it than met the eye.
In the shows first episode of the 8-part series, Boatbreakers made our appearance alongside two demolition companies who were dealing with a motorway bridge and a building. We think that we will feature next on Tuesday 10th October at 9pm.
If you enjoyed the show and you have an end of life boat that you need to scrap then visit our Scrap Boat page and fill in our Scrap Calculator. We can deal with all types of boat including yachts, motorboats, narrowboats, tugs, dinghies, catamarans and more.
