What's the difference between boat wrecking yards and marine salvage companies?

Boat Wrecking or Marine Salvage

Most boat wrecking yards are called salvage or marine salvage yards in the industry. However, salvage is much more than simply storing wrecked boats. Marine salvage includes towing and rescuing boats in peril, along with their crews, if necessary. It also entails underwater diving and assessment of damage and a whole world of marine services that are essential to safety and security when you're boating.

Boat wrecking yards provide used boat parts and even salvaged boats for sale, but marine salvage companies are much more complex organizations. If you need water rescue, or your boat is damaged and immovable, your best bet is to call a reputable marine salvage company right away.
