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.
As a first time boat buyer, being from Melbourne and with only one day available to do both sea trial and inspection of the boat prior to settlement, I was nervous purchasing a big boat that was not sure if it was mechanically and structurally good.
John was recommended to me as being one of the most thorough and comprehensive Surveyor in Brisbane/Gold Coast area and upon our arrival at the marina, John had already arrived early and was inspecting the vessel where he identified a number of issues that would not have been apparent to me. Then addressing & liaising with the broker to ensure they were repaired at the owners expense prior to final settlement. Highly recommend.
Surveyor provided an extremely professional service with regards to the pre purchase survey of the 52' Vessel. He was most helpful on the day of the survey, spending time explaining and discussing points identified. The survey report was delivered to me within 48 hours and was presented in a way that was easy to understand and key points that needed to be addressed with the Yacht Broker. I have no hesitation highly recommending Maritime Surveyor based upon the services provided.
Having used the Surveyor twice in the last 6 months. John performed both of the surveys including sea trials to the highest standard. He highlighted some big issues with the first one, that we did not end up purchasing. And the second one some issues that needed addressing before we completed the purchase and checked the repairs after they were complete. Since the purchase no further problems have been found and would recommend John to any boat purchaser. Thank you :-)

Brilliant service from the surveyor, survey was exactly what i needed, all emails i sent got answered pretty quick. Also by far best price i searched the internet for. Can certainly recommend, Thank you
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.
