- Ship Wheels -

Salvaged ship's wheels (helms) are becoming increasingly harder to find. 
Over the years we've been salvaging ship parts, we've carried hundreds of wheels but the supply is very quickly running out.

We only carry salvaged wheels, no reproductions.
  Please call or email for pricing and availability...

We also carry salvaged original steering stations, wheels attached to a gear stand or pedestal.
*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.
