Pre Purchase Survey
A pre purchase survey is the most comprehensive type of inspection and it is a critical step prior to making an investment in a boat. We will pour over the boat from stem to stern, examining the condition and overall operation of the vessel. The survey will include evaluations of structural integrity and over all design, electrical systems, the propulsion system, the fuel, water and waste systems, other machinery critical to the safe operation of the vessel, navigation equipment, cosmetic appearance, electronics, and general maintenance. We recommend an out-of-water inspection and a sea trial. We will provide this information to you in a clear, concise report that is easy to read and understand giving you the knowledge required to make an informed descision We use the latest technology and time honored techniques to find an accurate valuation of the vessel you are looking to purchase.
The purpose of this type of inspection is for the insurance company to determine whether or not the vessel is an acceptable risk. The areas of most concern are structural integrity and safety for its intended use. A fair market value of the vessel at the time of the survey will also need to be obtained. We will provide your insurance company with all the information they need to make the process of boat ownership as seamless as possible.
Insurance companies and boat owners can both benefit from this service. A damage survey is used to determine the cause of a loss and determine the extent of loss related damage to a vessel. We can recommend repairs, review estimates from boatyards and subcontractors, and come up with the value of the vessel prior to the damage.
