Every system on board the vessel will be tested from the integrity of the hull to checking the helm seat supports. Engines would need to be seen running by a Marine Engineer. The survey report is followed by a list of ‘Essential’ and ‘Non-Essential’ recommendations, my conclusions and a valuation.
In order to carry out a Pre-Purchase Survey, the vessel will need to be ashore or held in slings so that we can check the moisture content and the condition of the laminate on the hull. It must be noted that some systems on vessels cannot be checked whilst the vessel is on the hard.
Most Insurance Companies require this type of survey before they will take on risk any new instruction. Therefore, if you want peace of mind and like to know exactly what you are buying before you commit to purchase, this survey is ideal for you and can subsequently be presented to your Insurance Company, avoiding any delay in getting out onto the water!
