Organising and deciding on what survey you require can be a confusing process.  Have a look at my 'services' page to see clearly which type of survey you require.

A survey involves a thorough inspection of the whole yacht. This can take up to a day, and involve a rigorous check of every item inside and outside the yacht.  Once the survey is complete, and pictures have been taken for evidence, an in-depth yet concise report will be written up. This can be either emailed in PDF form, or printed and posted within five working days.


Revisiting a vessel can be arranged if recommended work is undertaken to the yacht. The report can then be updated accordingly. 


An invoice for the survey will be attached with the final report.


Please call 07545753074 or email for free advice and a quote.
