Picture yourself on a boat on a river… Well, there may not be tangerine trees and marmalade skies like in the song by The Beatles, however, there is no doubt that boating is a great experience and can be really relaxing and enjoyable. To the point that many spend their summer holidays on a boat. Or plan adventures for the whole family on a boat. If you are a fan of boating too and frequenting a lake or a dock, you may throw a few envy looks in the direction of boat owners. But you don’t have to do this anymore. Now you can have your own boat even without the huge budget for a new one because salvage boats are an existing option worth considering. In case you want to own one, but you are looking for very inexpensive options, salvage boats are a great solution.

Why Consider Salvage Boats?

Salvage boats provide you with the amazing opportunity to buy a recreational boat at a bargain price, for just a fraction of the cost of a new one and get a piece of some water-based fun and relaxation with the family of your own. That is right, salvage boats provide a great opportunity even those of you, who will never be willing to pay the full price for a new one. So if you are new to the water-based fun and a first-time buyer looking for inexpensive options, or you are looking for a side project, salvage boats may be the perfect choice for you. However, when it comes to buying salvage boats, you can either get afloat or sink if you don’t know how to shop for salvage boats. This is why today we would like to discuss salvage boats more in-depth and provide you with some useful information about salvage boats and how to shop for salvage boats.

Salvage Boats Explained

Just like it is with all other sorts of vehicles, salvage boats become salvage boats once someone files an insurance claim for damages that are deemed as beyond repair or too expensive to be repaired, compared to the value of the boat itself, by the insurance company. Usually, salvage boats become salvage boats when the cost of damage repairs will exceed eighty percent of the value. Most commonly, salvage boats become salvage boats after they have been damaged or destroyed by a hurricane or a large storm. In fact, when a serious storm hits the shores, chances are that the insurance companies will be flooded with claims and here is when a lot of boats become salvage boats.

In such or similar situation, when the insurance company has to deal with a lot of claims and title a lot of boats as salvage boats, there is a big chance that the companies will not even bother with dealing with and covering repairs, even in cases when these repairs are not very costly and expensive. Boats are deemed as salvage boats by the overwhelmed repair companies and insurers. As a result, salvage boats will be listed on the salvage boats market or a salvage boats auctions and from there you can find salvage boats with no dramatic damages that will not require costly and serious repairs. Here is your best opportunity to buy salvage boats and pay just a fraction of the original price, while still not paying a lot of repairs too. Of course, if you know a thing or two about repairing salvage boats, it will be a great side project for you, therefore you may be interested in the market of salvage boats.

What to Be Aware of When Buying Salvage Boats?

Of course, when shopping for and browsing through salvage boats, before you make a final decision and a purchase, it is important to check out and inspect the condition of salvage boats. However, make sure to also understand more about the condition of salvage boats before they have been damages. It is easy to understand what is the major damage that led to salvage boats being deemed with such title. However, learn more about the condition of the boat previously. While the last major damage could be a simple fix, years of neglecting the boat from the owner could be even more difficult to deal with. Therefore, when browsing and shopping for salvage boats, make sure to ignore for a second the damages that caused the boats being deemed as salvage boats and focus on how these boats have been treated before that point. Repairs of salvage boats will worth the investment usually when these boats have been treated with care before they have been totaled.

Causes of Damages of Salvage Boats

However, the main thing you will be interested in when buying salvage boats is the main damage and how it is caused, how it can be fixed. When dealing with salvage boats, there are many different damages and causes that can lead to such a situation. Each level of damage requires different consideration to decide of the investment is really worth it or not. For example, grounded boats may be a good choice because of the smaller damages that are easily and inexpensively repaired. Usually, when a boat is grounded, it comes loose from its mooring and sail around into mud, rocks, or even concrete. In such cases, the boat may end up with minor damage or perforation, which can be patched up cheaply and safely.

Submerging is another popular cause of damage. However, fully submerged or flooded boats are often dealing with major damage that can be costly to repair or even beyond repair. Floods often affect and damage almost all systems of the boat, even the motor. In such cases, investment in salvage boats is not a smart decision. However, salvage boats that have been sunk only for a few hours or a day may worth checking, because such may require only motors disassembled and cleaned to run again.

Where to Look for Salvage Boats?

There are some options available when looking for salvage boats. Visiting auctions is a popular solution, however, it takes time and energy and it is not always a fruitful endeavour. Therefore, we suggest you browsing online platforms such as this website, where you can find some really great offers and options for salvage boats. Make sure to browse all listings in your area and filter out your search according to your requirements and criteria. It all happens from the comfort of your home.
