- Ship Wheels -

Salvaged ship's wheels, or helms, are becoming increasingly harder to find. 
Over the years we have been carrying salvage, we've had hundreds of wheels
but the supply is running out; we only carry salvaged wheels, no reproductions.
  Please call or email for pricing and availability...

We also carry an assortment of wheels with the gear stands still intact; these are
called helm stations or steering stations.
*Check the HOMEPAGE for the most recent links of new shipments;
items on this page that are available will read "available" under the picture;
otherwise, that piece has been sold.

Sold pieces remain pictured to show the wide range of ship wheels that exist,
that we have carried, and that we continue to try to salvage.
