Over 30 Years Of Marine Surveying Experience
Our Pre-Purchase Surveys are the most comprehensive type of marine inspection and is strongly advised when purchasing a new or used vessel. Condition and overall operation of the vessel should be examined.
This marine inspection is performed so that an insurance company can determine whether or not a vessel is an acceptable risk. We determine the structural integrity and the safety of the vessel for its intended use.
We perform appraisal inspections in order to gather enough information to justify and/or determine the fair market value of a vessel. This is typically needed for purposes of financing, estate settlements, donation, and factor in legal cases such as divorce.

Frequently Asked Questions
We can answer that be telling you the advantages that a survey provides:
- A list of safety hazards that may endager you and/or your family
- A list of deficiencies that can effect the price of the vessel and/or help in your negotiating a purchase price
- An insurance record of the condition of the vessel at the time of survey, which is invaluable in the case of a collision/allision, sinking or fire.
- A record if condition for a future buyer
A surveyor charging less than his competitors is most likely inexperienced or not fully vested in the profession. Anyone can print a business card and build a website saying they are a surveyor. Career surveyors are very qualified, members of SAMS (Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors) and/or NAMS (National Association of Marine Surveyors) and are current with these organizations’ stringent educational and ethical requirements. An experienced surveyor is going to charge a fair price and provide a thorough presentation of the vessel’s condition and provide valuable feedback on repair options and resources.
We inspect every accessible area of the vessel from bow to stern. We are inspecting the hull and deck structure, plumbing, electrical, and mechanical systems. We do not engage in destructive testing, meaning we do not disassemble systems or compartments to gain access to every part of the vessel. Compartments, joinery, or fixed parts are not considered “accessible” within the normal scope of an inspection. If circumstances arise in which some disassembly is required to determine the condition of a particular system, the surveyor may recommend, as part of the report, further inspection by a qualified marine technician.
Also, the report includes the surveyor’s opinion of the vessel’s fair market value, which will help you set a sale price or negotiate a purchase price.
