Abandoned Craft Sale

Lymington Harbour Commissioners are selling a number of dinghies and two small sailing yachts 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 from Monday 16th May 2022 (office hours).

Interested parties are invited to submit tenders via a sealed bid process. The closing date for bids is 16.00 hours on Monday 30th May 2022.

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 Tuesday 31st May and successful bidders will be notified that day. Unsuccessful bidders will not be contacted. Payment must be made on collection.

IMPORTANT: Payment must be made on collection and all craft must be removed from the river before 16.00 hours on Tuesday 7th June 2022.

Lymington Harbour Commissioners offer no guarantee of seaworthiness or condition 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.
