Periodically Salmon Bay Boat Sales has boat, vehicles and surplus auctions in Seattle. Boats range in size from row boats to Yachts. Vehicles include Class A & B RVs, 4X4s, trucks and trailers. Boats, vehicles and surplus are auctioned for many reasons: Bank repossessions, moorage or storage fees, or possibly the current owner needs quick cash without spending months or years of marketing. Some older boats have historic value or could be parted out for use by other boat enthusiasts. Other boats allow the purchaser to go boating in the Northwest without a huge monetary outlay. Some of the vehicle storage items include RV's, Trailers and various materials that persons have left in storage without paying.

Some boats and vehicles have a minimum reserve price, while others have no minimum bid price. All boat or vehicle sales transfer title or bill of sale to the successful bidder. Successful bidders have recognized the deals and purchased boats at below market prices. Those bidders continue to return to our auctions.

Our auction site is in Seattle, Washington next to Fisherman's Terminal on the south side of the Lake Washington Ship Canal. Most of the boats auctioned can be viewed on site.
