Is the vessel's condition consistent with her age and price? To help you decide, a full condition survey includes a thorough inspection of a vessel's structure and systems - above and below the waterline.
When a specific part of a vessel gives concern, a focused study in partnership with the manufacturer's representative (and often a proprietary diagnostic tool) can help to solve a tricky problem more quickly.
In many cases project management pays for itself in costs, delivery time and outcome. If you are doing a refit we can help with scope, cost control, quality, planning and delivery.
Is the vessel suitable for charter? What modifications may be required and what equipment must be installed? We offer a full service to help you through the process. Our relationships with tax and legal advisors can help if you don't yet have a business set up to charter in Spain.
Surveying large yachts requires experience of their particular materials, structures, machinery, working procedures and standards. With practical background in large yachts and ongoing survey experience, we are well placed to contribute to your project.
Valuation and insurance surveys
Insurers, finance houses and owners need to know the value of a vessel. Insurers also require periodic surveys to verify the vessel complies with their terms.
We act for insurers and owners to assess damage and define the necessary repairs. We can suggest marine service providers whose experience qualifies them to quote for the work.
Tonnage surveys - which in fact give a view of volume and dimensions - are required to apply for UK Part 1, a respected registry with numerous benefits.
