has become the World largest dealer in marine antiques and original nautical decor. We specialise in doing business in some of the most demanding areas of the World, specifically the Ship-Breakers in the Far East where they run the ships up the beach and scrap the ships by hand.
QUOTE FROM BOSS:
“Everybody loves an architectural salvage yard but everybody has seen pretty much everything that can be reclaimed from a church, mansion, pub or factory. We stock items that the trade haven’t seen before and the public have only seen repro’s they can’t find anywhere else and we price the gear to sell.”
As long as the ship that we salvage from was built in the right era by the right ship-builder then i know that the design, craftsmanship and quality of materials used onboard are of the highest quality and can handle the removal, cleaning, shipping, storing and selling in all fixtures and fittings are as and we will completely strip the ship of its contents, for example, from the RMS Windsor Castle fro example we bought 10,000pcs of crockery, 2 ton’s of silver-plate tableware, 50 teak ships doors, 700 lights, 11 marble fireplaces, 350 items of furniture.
The reason why we are a well kept secret in the trade is…
“…people on our shores haven’t seen since the days of dock-side auctions in the 1920/30’s are the incredibly high quality and characterful fittings, fixtures, panelling and lighting etc that came from the ship-breakers.
Yes, we have items with specific provenance from ships like SS France and the Canberra but the majority of our stock is made up of the perfectly functional fittings that we salvage from that were built at the right time and by the right ship-builders”
The reason why people have such a fun time at our yard is…
