Pre-purchase or Full Condition Survey

This is the most comprehensive type of survey and encompasses all aspects of the yacht subject to standard limitations of the survey. We will carry out a detailed inspection of the boat, consider our findings and present you with a survey report which explains the condition of the vessel, highlighting any faults, how they can be resolved and a timescale on which they should be addressed. If you are considering buying a boat the results of the survey may alter her perceived value and therefore the survey report will be an important part of the purchase negotiations.

The survey report will include the following headings as appropriate to the type of vessel and its level of equipment.

  • Hull, Deck and Superstructure
  • Steering Arrangements and Rudder(s)
  • Ballast keel and Fastenings
  • Ground tackle
  • Cathodic protection
