Our yacht survey services perfect for a new buyer or experienced maritime lover.

 

Seen a boat you like and want it checked out?


A pre-purchase yacht survey is an in-depth, thorough evaluation of all the vessel’s systems. When conditions permit, the inspection includes operational testing of all onboard equipment. The vessel must be hauled out of the water for the underwater hull inspection. A sea trial is also highly recommended and is generally included in the cost of the survey when conditions permit. Other inspections include rigging, machinery and electrical systems. Given today’s complicated vessel systems, specialists could be consulted when circumstances dictate such as with large diesel powered machinery and complicated electronic systems.

Our Pre-purchase Survey report is designed to assist you in post survey negotiations, scheduling required repairs, completing routine and preventive maintenance as well as making decisions for upgrades in the near and distant future. We offer ultra-sonic hull inspections, infra-red electrical and delamination inspections and oil sample analyses.

Oil Analysis


Oil analysis is the analysis of a lubricant's properties, suspended contaminants, and wear debris. Oil Analysis is performed during routine predictive maintenance to provide meaningful and accurate information on lubricant and machine condition. By tracking oil analysis sample results over the life of a particular machine, trends can be established which can help eliminate costly repairs.

Oil Analysis can be divided into three categories: analysis of oil properties including those of the base oil and its additives, analysis of contaminants, analysis of wear debris from machinery,
