U.S. Army Landing Craft boat to cross the auction block
Military Trader - October 22, 2013
No dock required with this boat! The Defense Department is auctioning a Landing Craft Mechanized (LCM-8) boat, used exclusively by the U.S. Army, via its online auction site Government Liquidation (www.GovLiquidation.com). The landing craft, manufactured for the Army by Marinette Marine, was used by amphibious forces to transport cargo, vehicles and troops from assault ships to the beach or pier. No longer needed by the military, but far from unusable in the private sector, it is now being offered to the public; starting bid for each is $25.
