Marine Surveys are of several types for specific client requirements:
Prepurchase Survey is a comprehensive condition and value survey to well inform the new buyer of the condition and value, usually prior to purchase, or for clients with recent purchases. This survey can be used by insurance, finance companies and marinas.
Insurance Survey is a condition and value survey for insurance policy underwriting or renewal requirements and is also suitable for marinas. These surveys are for boaters who have owned their vessels for a minimum of 12 months, and focus on hull integrity, safety and vessel inventory associated with vessel value for clients whom have long term familiarity with the vessel.
Appraisal Survey to establish fair market value for donation purposes or to assist in legal or tax disputes.
Damage Appraisal to provide clients and insurance companies with damage assessments including scope of damage, and probable cause
Well conducted surveys can provide important information on the vessel condition and value so the client is prepared to make well informed decisions. Surveys are not warranties or guarantees, however, the survey attempts to inform the client of the conditions observed within areas that are reasonably accessible and as were observed aboard the day of the survey.
Survey samples and references are available upon request.
