Irma Salvage Sales?? Where to find?

Can anyone tell me any websites where the salvage boats are being sold? Tried googling and have only found 1 or 2 boats.
Thanks

Steven.

Re: Irma Salvage Sales?? Where to find?

Looking at the write ups and disclaimers, my opinion is that you need to travel down there and walk the yards. There's no way to even build a list of "I want to see" boats off of these listings. Everything is so vague and non-commital.

You might try The Moorings / Sunsail brokerage. Last I heard they had over 150 total losses in their BVI fleet.

Re: Irma Salvage Sales?? Where to find?

A lot of the better boats are being listed by brokers privately. My Bristol 54.4 Harkaway was totaled and the salvage is being sold by a broker. Heart broken but someone is going to get a great deal.

I was heart broken to hear your boat was totaled as well . They just don't build them like this any more and I'm sure never will . We have a bristol 45.5 .

Are you looking for a new one or have you already bought a new boat.

Regards John.

Re: Irma Salvage Sales?? Where to find?

Iíve had Bristolís for 28 years and sailed them on the east coast and the Islands.... 41.1, 47.7 and the 54.4. Never had a claim in the 28 yrs in the islands so I reduced the insurance coverage 2 yrs ago to save a few bucks. My ďtotaledĒ check will arrive shortly, and Iíll decide. But it will be another Bristol. 45.5 or 47.7.

I hope you had good coverage and you don't loose in the transaction. . We were thinking of a larger bristol ourselves but there are none on the market right now. I have done so many upgrades on our 45.5 I would be hard pressed to do it all over again to the next boat. Working on a new teak lined fiberglass hardtop bimini now, will be posting a video on our site showing that build soon. . But footitis has struck us so we are looking for something larger . Seems more family will want to visit for longer stays , so more cabins may be nice. If the right boat comes along , who knows...

Regards John

Try USAuctions.com, power and sail boats, selling on EBay frequently. No affiliation.
