“I just wanted to thank you for the brilliant job you did on my pre-purchase survey. Your patience, flexibility and accessibility were greatly appreciated. Your attention to detail and thoroughness surpassed every expectation I had. On a side note, even the insurance company made mention that this was the "most comprehensive survey we have ever seen". Thank you for making this part of the buying process less stressful.”

Insurance Surveys for boats in the UK, Palma, Gibraltar & Marbella

When you want to insure a boat, or renew your existing insurance policy, your insurance company will need an Insurance Survey in order to determine the condition and fair market value of the boat. This is where confusion can arise as Insurance Surveys can also be referred to as Condition or Valuation Surveys. An Insurance Survey is not as comprehensive as a Pre-Purchase Survey and although it usually does not include a Sea Trail, it will require a haul-out. This is because the Insurance company and underwriter are only interested in knowing about any physical aspect of the yacht that could cause it to suffer a loss, together with a realistic assessment of the condition it is in and its market value.

We'll undertake a survey that examines features such as the skin valves, fuel and gas systems, fixed safety appliances and the overall maintenance of the vessel. As part of this Survey we'll give a realistic assessment of the fair market value of the vessel at the time of the Survey. Because your Insurance Company may have its own requirements for what it considers an acceptable survey we'll help boat owners to consult with their insurance broker before commissioning the survey. Also we'll tailor our Insurance Surveys to the Insurance Company's requirements.
