Condition and Value Survey (Yachts and Small Craft)

A Condition and Value Survey involves a thorough inspection of the vessel's structural integrity and all systems on the vessel. Our survey will alert the vessel owner or prospective buyer of deficiencies that could adversely affect the safety or value of the vessel. Many vessel casualties are due to improper systems maintenance. Our survey will identify existing deficiencies and potential problems that can be avoided by taking preventative measures.
