Tru-Markets to sell storm-damaged boats from Hurricane Sandy in online auctions.

According to the Boat Owner’s Association of The United States, it is estimated that over 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 the Association began keeping track in 1966.

As part of the storm recovery process, Tru-Markets will be offering a large selection of storm damaged boats in a series of monthly online auctions at beginning in December. “We are committed to helping the East Coast recuperate after the Hurricane Sandy catastrophe”, explains Chad Farrell, Managing Partner at Tru-Markets. “We are working diligently to assist individuals, businesses, and insurance companies recover their property losses.”

Boat rebuilders, boatworks companies, boat dealers and brokers, and the general public are invited to bid on the storm damaged boats. Interested buyers can view high-resolution photos, get detailed boat information, and register to bid online in the auctions. Anyone interested in the vessels can inspect the boats prior to the auction. Registration is free, buyers can place bids online, and receive convenient email alerts when new bids are added to the Tru-Markets marketplace.

The December 2012 auction features boats and yachts with claim values up to $170,000 including a Sea Ray Sundancer 290, a Luhrs Tournament 380 Fishing Boat, a Carver 32 Yacht, and a Mainship 390 Trawler.
