Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Shopping Information

What do you sell?

We sell all the boat bits that are recovered by Boatbreakers when they scrap a boat. We also sell other larger items that come into our yard sometimes even whole boats that are usually in project condition. Not only do we sell parts of boats but also the many chandlery items that come inside each vessel we have in. This can be anything from chart plotters to inboard engines and much more.

How Long Will It Take To Get My Package?

We aim to have each item sent by at the very latest 2 working days after purchase. However during Monday-Thursday we can usually have the item packaged up and sent either the same day or the next. The time it takes then depends on the courier company.

Do You Ship Internationally?

Yes, we can arrange international shipping. It is arranged on a case by case basis. Please use the “Make an Offer” form you will find on most products, and specify where you need it shipped to request a quote.

We typically ship items via either Yodel, Royal Mail/ParcelForce or Evri. International Orders vary depending on location. We always aim to use the cheapest shipping method available.

General Questions

Do you scrap boats?

No. However we work closely with Boatbreakers who are based in our Boat Scrapyard in Portsmouth. Boatbreakers will scrap and dispose of boats of all makes and models across the UK, Ireland and most of Europe. If you have an end of life boat that you need to get rid of then get in contact and the Boatbreakers team will be happy to help.

Can I request a specific item?

Yes. We prefer for people to email us if you’re looking for a certain part. That way we will save you a wasted journey. Also this means that if we don’t have the part in we can look out for it on all the future boats that come in. You can also join our Facebook Group and request the part there.

Where are Boat Scrapyard Located?

We are located in Gosport. The full address is as follows: The Anchorage, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 1LY. Please call us before you visit. (See “Can I look around the warehouse?” question below)

Are all the items you sell second-hand?

Yes. We don’t buy any stock in to sell it’s all from the boats we have through our yard. However some of the items we sell are technically brand new as many are still in their original packaging.

Can I look around the warehouse?

Our warehouse isn’t set up for people to walk around and have a rummage. It’s best to phone or e-mail us with what you are looking for to save yourself a wasted journey. Visits to the warehouse are by appointment only.
