The Ministry of Transport said the vessels posed a marine obstruction risk and a danger to navigation and the environment.

The seven boats were lifted out of Coot Pond, St George’s.

The boats were all fibreglass-hulled and were between 13 and 25 feet long.

No one came forward to claim ownership despite an earlier appeal.
