All of our ship salvage comes from "ship breaking" yards around the world and is actually salvaged from working vessels. Once retired, the ships are essentially scrapped and all the tools, parts and various components are stored in these yards until we buy them.

Some items we have refurbished, some we keep as-is. This inventory is always changing as we try to find new pieces each time we comb the breaking yards during our travels.

We typically receive shipments of salvage ONCE every 7 months or so; please call or e-mail for availability!
*Check the HOMEPAGE for the most recent links of new shipments.

*Hint: use the "control F" buttons to search this page for keywords such as hatch cover, foxlights or charts*

dive boots weighted

  Grates & Hatch Covers:
Used as flooring, covering a hatch or placements requiring frequent drainage on board ships, grates are typically made from hardwoods including teak or mahogany, but softwoods were/are also used depending on the budget of the ship and placement of the particular piece.
These make "great" coffee tables, hanging pot racks, headboards, or simply stand-alone art.
Hatch covers are typically solid slabs of wood with metal bands around each end and strips across a shallow indentation where cargo hooks could pick them up.  They covered the holds on a ship and were manually set and removed before hydraulic and mechanical metal hatches came about.
