SERVICES WE PROVIDE

Pre-Purchase Survey, Condition and Value Survey, Insurance Survey, Damage Inspection

Pre-Purchase Survey
This is the most comprehensive type of inspection, and is strongly advised when purchasing a new or used vessel. Condition and overall operation of the vessel should be examined. This covers structural integrity, electrical systems, the propulsion system, the fuel system, other machinery, navigation equipment, miscellaneous on-board systems, cosmetic appearance, electronics, and overall maintenance as well as an out-of-water inspection and a sea trial.

Insurance Survey
This inspection is performed so that the insurance company can determine whether or not the vessel is an acceptable risk. They are interested in structural integrity and safety for its intended use. Most insurance companies require a survey on older boats. They will also want to know the vessel's fair market value.

Engine Survey
This involves test runs, compression tests, oil analysis, outdrive removal and many times internal inspection. If an engine survey is requested by the client, or is commissioned as a result of findings during the course of our a regular survey, it will performed by one of our colleagues. Gasoline, diesel or outboard engines surveys can be conducted by an expert in their respective field.

 

Damage Inspection
This is performed to assess the extent of damage, recommend repairs, estimate repair cost, and if requested, possible cause.

 

Thermal Imaging

This is a highly specialized service requiring proprietary equipment that we outsource to Patrick Goodrow from High Tech Marine Surveys who is an expert in this field.

 

Rates for our services
The cost of a marine survey can vary considerably on the type of vessel to be surveyed, the type of survey to be performed, the hull construction material, the location of the vessel as well as the equipment required for the job.
