Pre-Purchase 
A pre-purchase survey is a detailed inspection of the vessel which covers all aspects of the vessel that are considered to be important. The survey will assess whether the vessel meets the required standards and regulations and covers the hull and superstructure, electrical and mechanical installation, and internal fittings and equipment. 
 
The survey includes a report that will inform the potential purchaser of any issues affecting the vessel that may require rectification before purchase and will include any recommendations or suggestions. The report may enable the purchaser to negotiate on the purchase price. 
 
For a fairly new vessel it may not be necessary to have a full out of water survey and an in water survey may suffice. 
Hull Condition 
A hull only condition survey is useful if you want to know the condition of your hull. This may be to satisfy your own curiosity about its condition or if you wish to know if there are any repairs required. 
Insurance 
Insurance underwriters typically require a vessel to be surveyed when it reaches 20 years of age or over. This can range from a Hull only survey up to a Full condition survey. 
Our survey will assess the condition of the hull and associated items as per the underwriters requirements. 
Findings from this survey will be detailed in a report for the insurance underwriters to assess the vessels insurability. 
Out of Scope Survey 
An out of scope survey is one which is either not covered by any of the other categories of survey or is a combination of all the survey types. These can often be complex and time consuming. This type of survey may be needed as a result of poor workmanship during a repair or refit or as a result of a claim against a third party.
