Wanted help/information, salvage boat on St.Maarten

I'm thinking to buy one of the total loss boats on St.Maarten. Any information pointing in right direction is greatly appreciated. Brokers welcome if they actually can help with this.
Also welcome others who interested in purchasing one of the salvage boats - let's share information, I'm sure it'll be easier to stay together.

Re: Wanted help/information, salvage boat on St.Maarten

There are a few threads on this running, try searching with the word Salvage. Also, sadly, there are lots of places to choose from to find a boat to do this with. Which hopefully the folks in need of help will get things back on track sooner rather than later.

Re: Wanted help/information, salvage boat on St.Maarten

I keep an eye on all these threads. In most cases, people also asking for any info. Most likely, it's too early to tell anything in particular, but got to start somewhere. Many bigger total loss boats will be expensive to move/dispose (I'm interested in bigger catamaran), so owners/insurance companies will need to deal with this somehow. In particular, I will be interested in boat which can be brought back to the condition when it can be safely moved under its own power (sail or motor), within reasonable amount of time (few weeks/months). I would move it to the place where I could fix it up at my own pace later.

I'm also interested in this.
Also, if any owners of a damaged cat, don't wish to deal with hurricanes anymore, I could be convinced to trade my Cat2Fold for the right boat.
Here's a "for sale" video I made last year when another multihull was seriously flirting with me...

Re: Wanted help/information, salvage boat on St.Maarten

Hey Solarbri I love the concept of your Cat 2 fold and have followed it for some years good luck with the sale.
ATM I am selling my Whitehaven 11.8m performance cruiser ,listed on the forum I think ?

Thinking back to this original post I have thought along these lines before but right now would consider the timing it seems only today another Hurricane is brewing in the Carribean thats pretty much three in the last month is that a normal frequency ?
I know the ocean is warming in the Asian tropics .
The poor and rich victims will still be coming to terms with just surviving .
Interesting the north east coast of Australia is littered with ghost resorts not rebuilt after years of Cylclone destruction .
The majority of people effected by these latest disasters actually lost their permanent homes.

There are already few guys interested in this (send me a message if you have thoughts or information to share).
Looking for guys (boat owners etc.) who intending to go to St. Maarten in near future, or local St.Maarten people who can/willing to help, also guys who knows someone at marina out there.
