Severn Estuary Yacht Surveys

Pre-purchase Survey

A wise purchaser will instruct an INDEPENDENT surveyor to carry out a full condition survey prior to buying a vessel. This will highlight any hidden problems, so you can be sure you pay the correct price.




Insurance and finance companies frequently require valuations to be carried out prior to acceptance, especially on older boats. Our reports and valuations are accepted by most of these companies.



Sea Trials


Sea trials are a "real world" test of a boats systems. This may be done as part of a full condition survey or perhaps following significant repair or alterations.





Damage Survey

When a vessel is involved in an incident giving rise to an insurance claim, the insurers will appoint a surveyor to inspect the  damage and report on its nature and extent.





Tonnage measurment


A declaration of tonnage is required for British registration.





Commercially operated UK flagged vessels must comply with the MCA code of practise for small commercial vessels. We are authorised to carry out this work.
