Salvage

Why Sea-Help?

Call Sea-Help and take advantage of our long experience in Yacht Salvage and Sea-Assistance!

  • Skippers are surprised more frequently by heavy storms.
  • Those can last a couple of minutes only but the damages to the yachts are disastrous.
  • Since our start in May 2005 we have added a salvage service to our service portfolio on the Adriatic coast.
  • Every year there are about 150 stranded yachts, mainly due to dragging anchors  or engine failures. More than 50 yachts sunk in the summer of 2006.
  • Generally the salvages have to be paid by the owner. In case of a comprehensive insurance these costs can be reimbursed by your insurance company.
  • There are Croatian fishermen or dive-centers offering their help. Those costs or damages can not be claimed through the insurance companies.
  • Numerous Yachts did sink during the intent of a salvage and the insurance did not pay as the surveyor was not able to find out the reason of the damage.
  • We are insured for possible damages or total losses that could occur during the salvage process to a sum of up to 10 mil €.
  • If a fuel tank breaks or fuel runs out during the salvage (environmental harm) the liability is with the owner.
  • Not through us! We are insured!
