About us

SouthEast Yacht Surveys Limited is based on the East Coast in the famous riverside town of Burnham on Crouch and undertakes survey and project management work throughout the UK and Europe.

SEYS’s Principal Surveyor is Richard Franklin, MSc. Richard is an Accredited Member of the Yacht Designers and Surveyors Association (YDSA), an Associate member of RINA (the Royal Institution of Naval Architects) and an MCA certified commercial yacht captain. He has undertaken and managed major refits of sailing and motor yachts up to 140′ and has bought this experience with him into his surveying and project management practice.

Richard has a passion for sailing, and in particular for classic yachts. He was bought up sailing on the East Coast and since then has spent a lifetime (and much of his career) afloat. His sailing experience includes 12 years skippering superyachts under both sail and power as a professional captain, as well as skippering one of the Clipper Round the World Race entries in 2005/6, racing at international level in many classes as well as cruising extensively from the Pacific to the Mediterranean. He lives in Burnham on Crouch where he races regularly, is a volunteer with the local RNLI and spends what little spare time he has restoring his own 1966 classic ketch.
