Pre-Purchase Survey is the most detailed type of survey we offer. It is a comprehensive inspection of the entire vessel, including but not limited to Hull, Decks, Bulkheads, Engine’s & Drive Systems, Machinery, Operating system’s, Electronics, Electrical, Safety gear and much more where possible and takes a few hours to complete depending on size, condition and option of survey.
There are two options for the Pre-Purchase Survey.
Option 1: Is an inspection while the boat is in the water and berthed. Wherever possible, we inspect most of the vessels hull above waterline and all Decks, Engine’s, Machinery, Operating system’s, Electronics, Electrical, Safety gear and much more where possible.
Option 2: Includes all of Option 1 inspections plus exterior under waterline hull inspection while the boat is hauled out and includes props, shafts, rudders and much more where possible and takes a few hours to complete. Please note that the purchaser or current owner will need to organise and pay at their cost for a travel lift to have the vessel lifted out of the water. It is highly recommended for a Pre-Purchase and required for Insurance survey reports.
The Pre Purchase survey cost is also inclusive of:
- Travel to location as required within our area of operation.
- Sea trial to test the engines, steering & systems in real-life conditions if requested prior or during booking. Please note that the surveyor will not usually skipper the vessel at sea trials and a skipper must be provided by purchaser or current owner of vessel for the duration of the sea trial, although the surveyor may take charge of the vessel if required for further testing!
- Comprehensive Report with lots of photos, information and recommendations usually delivered by email within 48hours from inspection day.
- Available for questions and follow-up of survey report after delivery of the report.
The resulting Survey Report is a detailed account of the condition and seaworthiness of the vessel and all her systems as found at the time of survey. The Report can be used for marine insurance applications so there’s no need to have an additional Insurance Survey done assuming you have taken ‘option 2’ above.
Pre-Purchase Surveys often pay for themselves because in many cases the surveyor discovers defects that allow you to have piece of mind of your purchase or negotiate a lower purchase price if required.
Insurance Survey Marine insurance companies require a survey report for all new applications as well as renewal surveys every one to ten years on older vessels. The main purpose of these surveys is to determine if your vessel is an acceptable risk for the Underwriters. This survey reports are similar to our option 2 pre-purchase survey reports.
