This is a comprehensive type of inspection, and is strongly advised when purchasing a new or used vessel. The survey provides the basis for establishing fair market value. The condition of the hull and decks, and overall operation of the vessel's systems are examined and documented in detail. This type of survey is ideally conducted with an out-of-water inspection and a limited trial run.
This inspection is performed so that the insurance company can determine whether or not the vessel is an acceptable risk. Insurance companies are interested in structural integrity and safety for its intended use. Most insurance companies require a survey on older boats. They will also want to know the vessel’s fair market value.
