Yacht Surveys


Yacht and small craft surveyor

Pre-purchase and condition reports: 

I carry out pre-purchase surveys on both motor and sailing vessels of GRP, FRP, steel, aluminium and timber construction. A comprehensive inspection is carried out both in and out-of water, as well as sea and dock trials to log engine and vessel performance and verify the correct operation of systems. 

GRP/FRP vessels are checked structurally for delamination and osmotic related blistering by visual inspection and the use of sounding and moisture readings. 

Steel and aluminium vessels are checked visually and by hammer sounding and sample ultrasonic readings to establish general plating thickness of the hull.
