Buying a boat is a major investment, one that requires careful consideration.
As members of the Yacht Designers and Surveyors Association we offer
a comprehensive inspection of all types of vessel. Our surveyors
will carry out a detailed inspection systematically checking all
possible elements of the vessel highlighting their condition and
categorising any faults in order of seriousness. This allows our
customer to make an informed decision on the suitability of the
vessel and where applicable allows negotiation on the sale price.
provide a thorough sea trial inspection testing all systems and
machinery. Engine data is recorded and compared with manufacturers
specification. Sea trials often highlight issues that are undetectable
during a standard survey.
samples are a very helpful way to identify internal engine problems.
Samples are taken and sent away for analysis, the results are sent
back to our surveyor who will interpret the elements found in the
oil to identify areas of concern within the engine. This relatively
inexpensive testing may highlight internal problems with the engine
that cannot be detected by visual inspection.
