We buy every type of Stessco make and model

The buyers at 1800 Salvage are passionate about ships of every shape, size and category.

Whether it's a sleek fishing boat, a spacious family cruiser, or a sturdy commercial vessel, we understand the value inherent in Stessco craftsmanship.

We are eager to make your experience as seamless as possible. With our expertise and straightforward approach, you can trust us to provide a convenient and reliable option for selling your boat with confidence.

Not every car can be repaired. And, not every car that can be repaired is worth the cost. You can’t very well have undrivable and unroadworthy vehicles taking up space in your garage, or your mind for that matter. But we can.

1800 Salvage specialises in cash for cars. As specialist salvage car buyers, we buy every type of car no matter the damage's severity. We’ll remove your car for free, usually within 24 hours, if you live in or around a major city. All you need to do is sign off on our competitive price offers and tell us where to pick your car up. You won’t even have to be there!

Here are some of the models we are open to buying but not restricted to: 

  • Stessco 4.2 Catcher
  • Stessco Albacore 560CC
  • Stessco Bowrider 560
  • Stessco Breezaway 480
  • Stessco Fish Hunter 450
  • Stessco Renegade 450
  • Stessco Skipper 420
  • Stessco Sunseeker 580

Frequently asked questions about our cash-for-boats service

We understand that you still may have questions about how our money-for-Stessco process works. The team at 1800 Salvage is more than happy to answer.

Can you also buy my boat trailer?

Certainly! At 1800 Salvage, we can purchase your trailer along with your Stessco vessel. Our goal is to provide you with a hassle-free experience, ensuring that you can trade in your boat and trailer conveniently and efficiently. Please let us know if you want to sell them both so we can quote you accordingly.

Are there any hidden fees that I need to pay?

We honour our quoted price as long as your Stessco has been accurately described and represented. However, if discrepancies are found, we may need to adjust our offer accordingly. Please note that towing call-out fees may apply in such cases.

Can you purchase my Stessco if it has an outstanding loan?

1800 Salvage typically cannot buy vehicles that are still under finance. However, we can assist you in removing any encumbrance you may have. Occasionally, our purchase price exceeds your outstanding amount. In such cases, with a valid payout letter from your finance company, we can manage your loan and transfer the surplus funds to you. Alternatively, if our offer matches the unpaid portion, we can settle your finances in exchange for the vehicle. Speak to our friendly team to find out how we can assist you.

My boat has sunken into the waters. Can you buy it?

Due to the complexities surrounding sunken ships, we cannot purchase vessels in this condition. If you want to remove your sunken Stessco, we recommend contacting a towing company specialising in these retrievals. They have the expertise and equipment necessary to assist you effectively.

How long is my boat quote valid for?

All quotes from 1800 Salvage remain valid for 14 days, providing you with sufficient time to consider your options. Should you require an extension on your appraisal, simply inform us, and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. Rest assured, re-evaluation comes at no additional cost to you, ensuring transparency and flexibility throughout the process.

Does my boat need to be registered for you to purchase it?

Absolutely not. We buy all vehicles unlicenced and do not require a registration transfer. Remove your vessel’s sticker tags before your boat collection to avoid confusion.

Please fill out the ‘Cancellation of Registration’ form through your local Transport Department. You can be eligible for a refund for any remaining time left.
