The Massey Shaw Fireboat stands as a beacon of maritime history, a testament to bravery, and a symbol of resilience. Yet, maintaining such a historic vessel comes with its challenges, particularly when it comes to sourcing spare parts for its unique engines.

As custodians of a pair of DC8 engines, we understand the importance of having access to reliable spare parts. Over time, we’ve diligently collected a variety of components, ensuring that the future needs of the Massey Shaw Fireboat are secured. Additionally, we’ve taken the initiative to manufacture some of the more elusive and hard-to-obtain items, further bolstering the longevity of this historic vessel.

However, amidst our collection, we’ve identified surplus parts that could serve the needs of others who are on the hunt for that elusive component. By offering these surplus items to fellow enthusiasts and maritime aficionados, we not only contribute to the preservation of maritime history but also provide practical solutions to those in need.

What makes this initiative even more special is that all funds raised from the sale of these surplus items will directly support the ongoing maintenance of the Massey Shaw Fireboat. Every purchase made is a contribution towards keeping this piece of history afloat for generations to come.

Whether you’re a seasoned collector, a restoration enthusiast, or simply someone who appreciates the significance of preserving maritime heritage, your support matters. Together, let’s ensure that the Massey Shaw Fireboat continues to inspire and educate future generations.

Join us in our mission to keep history alive, one spare part at a time.
