Lymington Harbour Commissioners are selling a number of dinghies and small craft that have been abandoned within harbour limits or have been seized because of a failure to pay harbour dues or mooring fees. As the Statutory Harbour Authority, Lymington Harbour Commissioners have powers to seize and remove craft and to sell them to recover costs.
The craft offered for sale are marked with a lot number and will be made available for inspection through the Harbour Office.
Interested parties are invited to submit tenders via a sealed bid process. The closing date for bids is 16.00 hours on Sunday 7th April 2019.
To be valid, bids must be submitted in a sealed envelope using the pro-forma available from the Harbour Office. The envelope should be clearly marked with lot number of the relevant craft and endorsed “Abandoned Craft Sale”. Only one bid per lot is permitted. If bidding on more than one lot each bid must be submitted in a separate sealed envelope. Please note that bidding is considered a commitment to buy. If two identical maximum bids are received, the Operations Manager’s decision is final.
Envelopes will be opened on Monday 8th April 2019 and successful bidders will be notified that day. Unsuccessful bidders will not be contacted. Payment must be made on collection; please note that no delivery service is available. Payment and collection must be completed before 16.00 hours on Friday 12th April 2019. Craft not collected by this date will be subject to mooring charges at the standard visitor rate.
Lymington Harbour Commissioners offer no guarantee of seaworthiness in respect of these craft, which are “sold as seen”. New owners are advised to ensure that the craft they have purchased are suitable for the use to which they intend to put them.
