Services Offered:

Pre-Purchase Marine Survey

This is the most comprehensive type of marine survey and is recommended when purchasing a used vessel. Overall condition and valuation of the vessel will be examined. This survey covers structural integrity, electrical systems, general propulsion system, fuel system, other machinery, navigation equipment, miscellaneous on-board systems, cosmetic appearance, electronics, and overall maintenance as well as out-of-water underbody inspection. However we do not perform engine surveys or sailboat rigging surveys, preferring instead for your protection to refer you to the appropriate experts in those fields if we feel such a survey is warranted.

Marine Insurance Survey

Insurance Surveys are performed so that the insurance company can determine whether or not the vessel is an acceptable risk. Your insurer is interested in structural integrity and safety for its intended use. Most insurance companies require a marine survey on boats every four to five years, and they also want verification of the vessel’s fair market value.

Offshore Marine Survey

Your insurance company may require a marine survey to determine if your vessel is properly outfitted and equipped for that offshore passage to California, the South Pacific or beyond.

Marine Appraisal Inspection

Marine appraisal inspections are performed to gather enough information to justify or determine the fair market value of the vessel. This is normally needed for financing, estate settlements, donations and legal cases.
