About us

Welcome to Big Ship Salvage – Working Nautical Lights & Antiques

Big Ship Salvage is the lowest priced, transparent seller of pre-wired nautical lights in the United States. We don’t hide our prices. We don’t lie about our items. We’re right here in Ohio. You can call, email, or stop by our warehouse anytime you want.

Our inventory contains some of the finest nautical antiques and marine nautical lighting you can find. We offer over 100 different options for outdoor or indoor nautical wall, ceiling and post mounted lights. These marine grade nautical lights have seen years at sea on real working ships. Our lights have been rewired with a brand new “UL-Listed” bulb socket and wiring that takes a normal screw-in bulb. Enjoy browsing the different pages of antique and vintage nautical lights and décor.
Are you looking for outdoor nautical lighting that can weather any storm, or just marine and nautical style lighting that gives that true beach house look? We have a great selection of vintage nautical antiques and lights to add that warmth and one-of-a-kind look to your coastal style home. Big Ship Salvage’s working nautical lighting can help you create the feel of beach house living with our authentic nautical lighting. If your project calls for coastal sconces, ship’s passageway lights, or even those hard to find kitchen pendant lights, we can help! We are always updating our inventory of nautical antiques and lights. We offer over 100 different options for outdoor nautical wall and ceiling lights. Oftentimes when we buy these salvaged ship lights, it takes many months to get them ready to become that perfect kitchen pendant light, or that coastal sconce for your front door. Our brass nautical lights do not have a brass finish, they are solid brass. Salvaged ship lights not only make your dock look good for years, they require little or no upkeep. Outdoor dock lights can come in many designs. If you don’t see the nautical antiques and lights you are looking for, call or email us!
Our authentic ship’s passageway lights can be mounted to the side of your piling posts. Another great option for dock lighting is our great selection of post mounted marine grade nautical lights. These post mounted brass lights will stand out and give a true nautical look wherever you install them.  Most orders ship the same day we receive them, or the next business day. Unless noted, all of our nautical lighting has been rewired and ready to go. Our lights come with a brand new “UL-Listed” bulb socket that takes a normal screw-in house bulb. Each and every light comes with 18/2 “UL-Listed” lamp wire, and that wire will extend out of the light in such a way that it is not seen after the light is installed. Each and every light leaves our shop with a brand new ground wire that is “UL-Listed” and marked “THHN” for wet locations. You will not get this by buying lights from one of those India based sellers on eBay. In fact, most of our competition either can’t rewire lights, or they charge as much for the wiring as they do for the light. All of our nautical lights come wired at no extra cost to you. Please enjoy browsing our large inventory of nautical antiques and lights.
