Default Buying mothballed ships

I have a question about purchasing old capital ships.

Something I noticed while looking through the Pirates of Drinax campaign. Where background says there's a planet with retired navy personnel and old ships looking for someone to use them. And while looking at my T20 fleet books: Fighting ships and Solomani.

How do you go about buying mothballed ships? Say you make a deal with the Imperium or Solomani to buy old ships for the Drinax Star Guard. (well pirates would most likely steal them :P)

Now the T20 vessels are hundreds of years old. But mothballing is supposed to preserve them in good shape. I've seen depreciation values for ships over 50 years old is 50%. But are mothballed ships subject to this?

What's the resale value on these vessels?
