Derelict boats up for sale in Langebaan

Department of Defence issues call for offers

SOUTH AFRICA: The Department of Defence is aiming to sell four boats in various stages of decay currently at the Special Forces Regiment in Langebaan. Bidders are urged to attend a compulsory viewing of the vessels before submitting offers.

Removal of vessels is to be executed at the purchaser’s own expense with all applications for both transport via trailer or via tow to be arranged independent of the Navy and with the relevant authorities.

The four vessels for sale at the Langebaan base
NAME CURRENT STATE ENGINE ENGINE CONDITION SIZE WEIGHT
Hagar Unserviceable CAT Unknown 50ft 15-17 tons
Vredenburger Unserviceable CAT Unknown 50ft 15-17 tons
Viking Unserviceable Detroit Unknown 54ft 12-15 tons
Helgar Unserviceable Perkins Unknown 35ft 8-10 tons

The Navy is calling for Hagar and Viking to be removed within 14 days of purchasing. Both Hagar and Viking are currently moored alongside and presumably can be towed from their current positions.

Helgar and Vredenberger, however, are both looking rather derelict and will need to be lifted onto a suitable trailer and driven from the base.

Considering the current state of the vessels, the 64-page tender document seems a little excessive in what it requires in the form of declarations from the bidders.
