Assurance For Your Investment

A marine survey is designed to inform you of the condition of a yacht or any other sea or river going vessel. There are various levels of survey dependent on whether you are an owner or a potential purchaser and there are different reasons for having one but the most common ones are:

  • for general condition.

  • for a potential purchase.

  • for insurance purposes.

  • for valuation purposes.

There are various other types of survey that I can offer and these are outlined in the other vessel surveys tab in the menu bar above.​

With over 12 years experience dealing with motor and sailing yachts of all sizes, work boats and even historic ships, I can offer you a first class service and more importantly, peace of mind. Conveniently based close to Southampton, the South Coast's premier yachting haven, I can travel to anywhere with ease, whether it be local or further abroad.

Survey Types Offered

  • Full Condition - as the name implies, this deals with the vessel in its entirety.

  • Insurance - mainly used for insurance purposes which adds the main domestic systems to the structural survey.

  • Structural - dealing with all the main structure, stern gear and machinery.

  • Limited Outer Bottom - dealing with the underwater hull, stern gear and skin fittings.

  • Sea Trial - putting the yacht through its paces to ensure all is well - or not.

  • Other Survey Types - amongst others this  includes commercial craft surveys, damage  surveys, yacht pre-delivery inspections, yacht valuations and historic ship inspections.
