We are here for you when
the unexpected happens.
Historically and legally, salvage is any voluntary and successful rescue of a boat and its cargo from a peril. Many times a barge is necessary to retrieve a vessel that is incapacitated whether slipped, moored, sunk or ran ashore.
Here is an important note: It is not necessary that the danger or peril to the vessel be immediate, imminent or absolute. In order to justify a salvage award for salvage services, it is sufficient that if, when such service is rendered, the vessel has encountered danger, misfortune, peril or other circumstances which might expose her to damage or destruction if the services were not rendered.
When contracting for salvage services based on peril due to a storm, barge services are very helpful, safe and efficient for recovering a vessel that has sunk or is in a precarious position in or near the water’s edge.
