Before purchasing a vessel, a pre-purchase survey allows the Buyer to be informed about the state of the vessel. This is a comprehensive inspection and report of the new or used vessel.
An insurance company or lender typically requires this type of survey to determine whether or not the vessel is an acceptable risk. They are interested in structural integrity and safety for its intended use as well as the vessel’s fair market value.
We gather information to justify or determine the fair market value of the vessel. This is normally needed for financing, estate settlements, donations and legal cases. Contact us for more information on your specific survey needs.
