Pre purchase survey

Pre-purchase surveys offer the potential buyer a detailed assessment of the condition of their prospective purchase. We will provide you with a written report explaining any defects and how urgent the repair is and if required, suggesting means of rectification.

We pride ourselves in providing highly detailed, well laid out and easy to understand reports that avoid overuse of technical jargon. This information will be helpful in your decision making process when purchasing the vessel and is intended to allow you to factor in the cost of required repairs and to take this into consideration in deciding what price you would be prepared to pay. If the defects are very serious, you may wish to reconsider whether or not to proceed with your purchase.
