Yacht Valuations

We provide an independent yacht valuation service, providing a professional opinion for individuals and businesses alike.  This can be for the purposes of Insurance, Marine Mortgages, Bank Loans, Probate, Repossession, Pre-purchase investigation, biding or ascertaining a private sale price.

Yacht valuations, in most instances, can be carried out with the vessel afloat, on the assumption that the hull, keel(s), stern gear and rudder(s) are of a sound condition.  This is acceptable for most circumstances.  The most accurate valuation of a yacht can only be carried out in association with a full condition survey.
