The Importance of a Professional Marine Survey for Your Boat or Yacht:
A marine survey is a detailed inspection of a boat for the purpose of determining its current condition, seaworthiness and value. In addition to a complete detailed description of the condition of the vessel and its’ components: machinery and equipment (navigational, safety, radio), the marine surveyor should also provide the following answers:
- Is the the vessel safe to use in conditions for which it was designed?
- What maintenance and repairs are required on the boat now?
- What boat maintenance and repairs will likely be required in the near future?
A marine survey should always be completed before purchasing a boat. However, most buyers are not experienced enough, or mechanically inclined to a point where they can make an adequate evaluation on their own. Even those who are qualified benefit immensely from a second professional and unbiased opinion.
In addition to pre-purchase surveys, marine surveys are also needed to appraise the vessel for insurance underwriting or to assess the damage to a boat for an insurance claim.
