There actually is a reason to keep useless ships arround.
You can use them to store things on. Spare weapons, consoles, devices, etc...
That may not be a problem yet, but in time it will be.
Your bank will get full pretty quick as you get more into things and you pretty much want to keep as much space open in your personal inventory as you can.
