1800 Salvage buys boats in any condition except sunken. Whether you’re selling off an old skiff or sadly parting with a written-off Sea Ray yacht, we’ll offer a fair price and offer a free boat tow-away.
Boats tend to be luxury purchases, making parting with them a sorrow. Selling your boat shouldn’t be a challenge. As Australia’s vehicle salvage specialists, we have the resources and experience to ensure it isn't.
With our nationwide network of towing partners, we can buy and tow away any kind of boat or sea vessel. No matter how damaged it is, whether it’s a statutory write-off or an unregistered rustbucket, we’ll pay top dollar to salvage it.
Luxury yachts, fishing boats, speedboats — you name it, we buy it.
Unlike many other potential buyers, we operate entirely digitally. We offer valuations based on a few details and photos, and can have your sale approved within a day.
Plus, whether you’re on the Gold Coast or Shark Bay, we’ll have your boat towed, for free, within 72 hours.
No matter how common or rare, we trade cash for all brands.
Enter your vehicle details and we'll give you a valuation.
Paperwork is signed digitally for the fastest turnaround.
We send payment electronically before we pick up your vehicle.
We buy from everyone. If you are an insurer or repair specialist with a write-off, we’ll pick it up from you. If you’re a private individual, spending thousands on repairs might not be worth it — you might make far more selling it to a salvage specialist.
We accept salvage tenders from insurance companies and independent assessors, and we get back to you within 24 hours.
We buy damaged vehicles from panel beaters and customers when they are economically unrepairable.
If you have an old, damaged, uninsured, or unregistered vehicle, we can take it off your hands in no time.
You may be able to get a refund on your registration by contacting your state authority. If you provide them with the contract of sale we give you, they may be able to refund you.
No. Electronic components that have been flooded can be an electrocution hazard, so we cannot salvage them. Consider having your flooded boat scrapped.
We can buy and tow boats that weigh up to 10 tonnes. We may need more time to organise towing for boats on the heavier side, but with help from our experienced towing partners, we’ll find a solution. Whatever the weight, we’ll still tow it at no additional cost to you.
We do not require an in-person inspection to buy a salvage boat. We will send through a list of vehicle details that we need, as well as a request for photos of the boat to gauge its level of damage. You can submit all of these online.
