“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.”

Pre-purchase Surveys for boats in the UK, Palma, Gibraltar & Marbella

We provide a FREE Engine and Systems Survey as part of any Pre-Purchase Survey we undertake.

The Pre-Purchase Survey (sometimes called a Full Condition Survey) is the most comprehensive type of boat survey available and we strongly advise you order one when purchasing a used vessel. After all when you buy a boat you want to get as much information about it as possible before closing the deal. You'll want to know if the boat is structurally sound and if it's safe, if the equipment and machinery are in good working order and ultimately if it is good value for money. If you tell us what you want the boat for we can also advise on whether this is the right boat for you. We want you to have this information so you know exactly what you are buying and can be confident in your purchase.

During the survey we examine the condition and overall operation of the vessel. We will inspect and report on the structural integrity, electrical systems, the propulsion system, the fuel system, any other machinery on board, the navigation equipment, all miscellaneous on-board systems, the vessel's cosmetic appearance, the electronics and its overall maintenance. What is unique about us is that an engine inspection is included free as part of our survey. We'll also undertake an out-of-water inspection and moisture meter readings. As part of our Pre-Purchase Surveys we recommend and include a Sea Trial. This allows us to examine fully the overall condition and performance of the vessel and in particular to examine the Engine and Mechanical systems - Click on the Engine & Systems Surveys to find out more.

Lastly we'll check to see that all the items mentioned in a Broker's Listing are on board.
