Having used Theo for my Hull Survey, with a particularly unusual boat, I can thoroughly recommend his services. His interest in boats is obvious and he took his time to do a thorough job around mine. Personally I found him to be a thoughtful, diligent, personable character, and extremely helpful. We have stayed in contact since and he has been unerring in his help and thoughts in my repair processes. I don't think you will find anyone better, or more experienced and helpful than this Gentleman. Please use him with confidence.
Theo's reports are of the highest quality, I would definitely recommend him for any marine surveys! I will definitely use his services again in the future.
The report I received for my NB survey was extremely comprehensive an detailed. Theo was generous with time an advice over the phone in addition to producing a written report.
Theo has been incredibly knowledgable and helpful with resolving some build issues with our catamaran, and a huge asset in with dealing with the manufacturer. Would highly recommend.
A very thorough surveyor . Excellent service, concise information well presented. Highly recommend for any marine survey, happy to talk to me about any aspect of the project and great aftercare.
I contacted Theo to have an insurance survey carried out. Speaking with other boat owners the general consensus was that he will be there for around an hour, not get his hands dirty and charge a small fortune. Not so, he was very thorough checking every nook and cranny and spent several hours going over the boat inside and out. I am pleased to say, although he gave a good overall report, there were some issues requiring attention which I had not been aware of and lets face it, your safety at sea could depend on the smallest thing failing that has gone unnoticed. I would definitely recommend him.
I have found Mr Wakefield to be an extremely competent marine surveyor. He has helped me out, tackling a repair job with a large yacht building company who were not going to come to the party. Through his efforts, the company agreed to pay for all the repair work. We would not have got this result without the careful work undertaken by Mr Wakefield. I recommend him very highly.
