To safe guard yourself and the interests of your yacht, always ensure the surveyor uses a designation denoting membership in accrediting organizations that require members to meet very strict professional, technical and ethical standards. We’ll provide you with a professionally prepared report that can be accepted by banks and insurance companies. Not only do we have the accreditation, we have a lengthy history of successful inspections to prove it.
WELL-conducted surveys can provide good information on the vessel’s condition, but they are not guarantees. We report the condition in accessible areas only as it existed at the time of inspection.
Why should you have your vessel surveyed? You, as a buyer, need to know the vessel’s condition and approximate fair market value. Most insurance companies and banks will require a current survey on older vessels. Finally, the most important reason to survey your vessel is for the safety of your crew and guests. Nothing is more important than the safety of those aboard your ship!
ANYONE can title himself or herself as a marine surveyor and start doing business, but it takes knowledge, experience and accreditation to perform the meticulous surveys we do.
