I go through all the parts of the boat in a systematic way, checking and testing out systems and issues and collect information, our observations and recommendations that I then use to write the survey report.
An inspection can take 90 - 360 minutes to complete depended on size of Boat/Vessel and number of engines. You’ll receive your emailed report within 24-72 hours from completion of inspection.

 Surveyor performed a pre-purchase and insurance survey including sea trial for the 60' vessel I was looking to purchase. He highlighted some issues that needed addressing before we completed the purchase. I considered the survey to be very thorough and would highly recommend to any vessel purchaser."

Alan MManly, Brisbane

 Used Surveyor on two occasions and both times was very friendly and professional. Took lots of pics, checked everything. He explained what he had surveyed and the faults he had found, in easy to understand terms. We received the full report both times within two days later. Very good quality comprehensive report from experienced surveyor. Very good service all round, We would not hesitate and highly recommend."
