Pre-purchase Survey

This detailed survey will help you to assess the vessel value and functional condition before making a decision to buy and finalize the price. Our aim is to provide you an accurate survey report, detailing every aspect of the vessel to ensure that your decision is well informed and in-line with the vessel condition and value. The survey report also includes recommendations from our professional marine surveyors. You may use this for a better price adjustment based on repair recommendations provided by our experts. The recommendations will also help you to do the maintenance of the vessel after your purchase to make it sea worthy for your intended use.

We can conduct a sea trial of the vessel before finalizing the survey report to make sure we don’t miss anything for an extra cost. We encourage the potential buyer to attend this trial with our experts.
