Pre-Purchase Survey

This type of survey is also called a Condition and Value (C&V) Survey. For most consumers, buying a boat is an extensive investment. We strongly recommend obtaining a pre-purchase survey from an unbiased third party marine surveyor. A complete survey will determine the general condition of the boat. Before agreeing to the purchase, you will need to know if it is in good condition.

We inspect the following:

  • Plumbing
  • Condition of the Hull
  • Electrical Workings
  • Rigging
  • Power Systems
  • Overall Maintenance
  • Current Condition
  • And much more!


  • Documentation
  • Fair market value
  • Replacement value
  • Detailed Report

If an owner wants to sell or donate their property, an appraisal survey is conducted first. It is not an extensive survey but is thorough enough to establish the current worth of the boat. Overall appearance, condition, and fair market value are considered when establishing a boat’s value. These types of surveys are often needed for estate settlements, legal cases, and financing.

Damage Inspections Survey

A damage inspection survey is conducted to determine the extent of damage and loss as a result of damage to your boat. An insurance company or boat owner can retain our services for the inspection, to recommend repairs, review estimates for repair, and establish the previous value of the vessel.

Insurance Survey

Insurance companies must determine if a small boat or yacht is an acceptable risk prior to issuing insurance coverage. We will determine the value, structural integrity, marine risk, and document the inventory of the boat. Most boats, especially older models, require an inspection before being granted new insurance coverage or renewals for existing customers.

Finance Survey

Independent third party vessel surveying companies deliver unbiased finance surveys to financial institutions. This type of survey is not always as comprehensive as a C&V survey. This largely depends on the request by the bank. These are obtained mainly for the purpose of determining a vessel’s current value, condition, and whether it is being taken care of with regular maintenance.
