Yes. It’s Easy to Arrange for one of our Surveyors…

We designed this website in order to create a very simple and easy system of arranging your marine survey. It includes the ability for you,  the prospective client,  to review our surveyor’s qualifications, observe samples of our previous marine survey reports, and review our work agreement.

Our Goal During the Survey…

Our goal is to find and report problems before they can cost you money or compromise the safety of the crew or vessel. A qualified marine surveyor knows where to look for potential problems. Do not buy any vessel without an independent expert survey and appraisal.

Important Thing to Think About…

A detailed marine survey of a new or used boat places you, the prospective buyer, in the advantageous position of being able to bargain the sale price or for the repair/restoration work needed before a purchase. This typically amounts to thousands of dollars in savings, and more often than not, offsets the cost of the survey. In addition,  the information contained within the survey is of huge value to a new owner.
