What is a marine survey?

A pre-purchase marine survey is a thorough inspection of the vessel’s structural and watertight integrity, system’s installations, and operating condition, as well as performance. A comprehensive report is issued which includes an equipment list, specifications and a detailed list of deficiencies and recommendations. Replacement and market values [in US dollars] are assigned to the vessel. Most lending institutions and insurance companies require a pre-purchase survey.

New Construction Consultation and Surveys

New construction surveys are conducted on a progressive inspection schedule throughout the vessel’s construction. Inspection includes observations of the structural integrity of the hull and superstructure, installation of systems, and cosmetic fit and finish of the vessel upon completion.

Insurance Evaluation Surveys

Insurance surveys are conducted to determine marine risk and value of a vessel, and are often used for re-insurance of vessel.

Financial Evaluation Surveys

An inspection to determine the vessel’s value is conducted primarily for refinancing, estate settlement, and divorce asset value.

Customs Surveys

Customs surveys are conducted on foreign registered vessels that are being imported into the United States in order to determine value for duty [tax] assessment.

Damage Inspections

Damage inspections determine the scope of damage and aid in the formulation of a repair plan. Progressive inspections of the repair work are often requested, along with a final inspection of completed repair work.

Maintenance Inspections

A list of maintenance recommendations is compiled in order to prioritize maintenance items. This is often conducted prior to the vessel’s scheduled shipyard service.

Hull Bottom Inspection

Hull bottom inspections are conducted to ascertain the integrity of the hull, identify any damage due to groundings, galvanic action, and normal wear or contact with submerged objects, and a check for proper alignment of the running gear.
