Recreational Surveys

  • Pre-Purchase Survey
    This is the most comprehensive type of inspection, and is strongly advised when purchasing a new or used vessel. Condition and overall operation of the vessel will be examined. Coverage includes safety, structural integrity, electrical systems, propulsion, fuel system machinery, pumps, plumbing, navigation equipment, rigging, miscellaneous on-board systems, cosmetic appearance, electronics, and overall maintenance as well as an out-of-water inspection and sea trial.

  • Insurance Survey
    This inspection is performed so that the insurance company can determine whether or not the vessel is an acceptable risk. They are interested in structural integrity and safety for its intended use. Most insurance companies require a survey on older boats. They will also want to know the vessel's fair market value.
