Storm-damaged-boat auction set for Dec. 18

Tru-Markets will offer a large selection of boats damaged by Hurricane Sandy in a series of monthly online auctions, beginning Dec. 18.

“We are committed to helping the East Coast recuperate after the Hurricane Sandy catastrophe,” Tru-Markets managing partner Chad Farrell said in a statement. “We are working diligently to assist individuals, businesses, and insurance companies recover their property losses.”

According to BoatUS, it is estimated that more than 65,000 recreational boats were damaged or lost as a result of Hurricane Sandy. The group also estimated damage in the range of $650 million for recreational boats, making the storm the single-largest industry loss since BoatUS began keeping track in 1966.

Rebuilders, boat companies, dealers and brokers and the general public are invited to bid on the storm-damaged boats. Anyone interested in the boats can inspect them prior to the auction. Registration is free.

The December auction features boats and yachts with claim values of as much as $170,000, including a Sea Ray Sundancer 290, a Luhrs Tournament 380 fishing boat, a Carver 32 yacht and a Mainship 390 trawler.
