Why are surveys important??
Surveys are very valuable to obtain, whether before selling your vessel or before buying a vessel. I encourage sellers to obtain a mechanical survey prior to listing a vessel so they are aware of any mechanical issues that may postpone a sale, during this inspection I collect oil samples of engines, generators and transmission. I check for hose aging, any leaks, I look over everything that may come up in an actual survey. According to ABYC standards hoses should be replaced after 10 years, most boat owners are not aware of this.
PRE PURCHASE BUYERS SURVEY- This type of survey is strongly advised when purchasing a new vessel. This inspection survey is a complete look over as to the boats condition and operational abilities. During this survey we review all the equipment and systems to make sure they are appropriately functioning.
VALUATION AND APPRAISAL SURVEY- This type of survey is to provide the vessels fair market value. During this survey we will inspect the vessels systems and equipment to accurately give an estimate of the vessels value.
MECHANICAL SURVEY- This type of survey is a detailed inspection of the vessels drive system. During this survey we will perform tests on the engines, gauges, alternator, we will take readings from a hot and cold startup. We also provide OIL SAMPLE ANALYSIS upon request we can take samples from the main engines, marine transmission, and gen engines.
