Advance Notice for the Potential Sale of the former HMS Walney


Built in 1991 as a warship (Single Role Minehunter), Walney is a genuine former HMS vessel which came out of service in 2010. It is currently moored in Portsmouth and will be sold from there.

The Defence Equipment Sales Authority (DESA) is inviting expressions of interest from individuals who wish to be considered for this one-of-a-kind proposed sale. All interested parties will be required to contact the Defence Equipment Sales Authority for further information.

The vessel is sound for towing but is no longer in a running condition and since decommissioning has been stripped, including engine removal.

Guide Price – £30,000

Further use interest should be based on the use of the hull and superstructure. It has the potential for use as a houseboat, a stylish restaurant, a floating bar or even an office-space packed with individuality.

A unique development opportunity where viewing is recommended.

Closing date for expressions of interest is 31 July 2018.
