Pre Purchase Survey

This is a comprehensive inspection conducted when buying a new or used vessel where the condition and operation of the overall vessel is examined. It includes a review of structure, mechanical and electrical systems, navigation and safety equipment as well as cosmetic and general design details. It is usually conducted out of water and can include a sea trial.

Insurance Survey

This inspection is carried out so that the insurance company may determine if the vessel condition poses an acceptable risk. It mostly concerns structure and safety issues and is required for most older boats. It may also include an estimation of the vessel’s fair market value.

Appraisal Inspection

This inspection is performed to determine the fair market value of a vessel for financing and estate settlement purposes.

Damage Inspection

This inspection is performed in order to evaluate the extent of the damage and the probable cause. It may include recommended repairs as well as an estimate of repair costs.
