Royal Navy: Former patrol ship HMS Sabre is on eBay - for £134,995
The ex-HMS Sabre, a high-speed patrol boat, is for sale with Ramco, a reuse expert which helps organisations to dispose of unwanted assets.
A spokeswoman for Ramco said: ‘Sabre has had a long and interesting working life, originally named Grey Wolf under ownership of the MoD and operated on the inland waterways of Northern Ireland amongst other places.
‘More recently, following her demilitarisation from the MoD, Sabre was used by the Home Office until being officially decommissioned.’
In September 2020 Sabre returned to Portsmouth and after operating in UK waters for a period, was decommissioned in a ceremony at Portsmouth Naval Base in March 2022.
To prepare Sabre for a new lease of life, she has been recommissioned by Ramco with engineers servicing main engines and onboard generators. The Lincolnshire company has been working with the MoD for more than 25 years and supports government departments and businesses to find value in their equipment that’s no longer needed.
