Auction of historic boats

Very sad to see that the Eyemouth Maritime Museum seems to be shutting down and auctioning off its collection. However, it’s an opportunity if you want to acquire a historic boat…

ONLINE AUCTION (Eyemouth, Cardiff & Lowestoft) Closing 12 Noon Wed 26th July 2017 *

Being sold under the instructions of the liquidators of Eyemouth International Sailing Craft Association Limited (Eisca), a Scottish registered Charity

MARITIME MUSEUM’S BOAT COLLECTION – Comprising: 270 Boats of Internationally significant importance from around the world. These range from an Arabian Pearling Dhow to classic racing Dinghies, Trans-Pacific and other competition craft alongside other International working boats. It is thought that some go back 500 years but many are from the 19th century. This collection started life at The Exeter Maritime Museum (ISCA) in 1968 and has been significantly added to since that time under a new charity (Eisca). The collection is understood to include many of the last known survivors of their type in the world, constructed from Reed, Timber, Metals including Aluminium and Iron, and of course Glass Fibre.

Also to be included in this online auction sale are a range of Artefacts including a photographic archive, Library and maritime ephemera.

The entire contents of Eisca locations throughout the UK will be auctioned individually, here online, closing online Wednesday 26th July at 12 Noon *
