Ship Salvage:

We travel to the world's largest ship breaking yards a month out of each year, hand picking interesting and unique pieces that have been salvaged from various vessels.

Many of these items are one-of-a-kind and we may not discover another, so jump on it when it says "available" under the picture - otherwise, someone else already has!

*As always, please call or email for pricing and availability.  Sold pieces remain pictured to show the variety of pieces we have carried in the past and what we continue to search for during salvage buying trips.
