This is the most comprehensive type of survey, and is strongly advised to be performed when purchasing a new or used vessel.
This type of survey covers structural integrity, out of the water inspection, the propulsion, electrical, fuel systems, navigation equipment, miscellaneous on-board systems, cosmetic appearance, and electronics. Replacement and Fair Market Value costs are also included along with Finding and Recommendations.
This survey is conducted so that the insurance company can determine whether or not the vessel is an acceptable risk. They are interested that the vessel is safe for its intended use. They also require the vessel's fair market value.
This is performed to assess the extent of damage, recommend repairs, and if requested, possible cause.
Determines the fair market value of the vessel for financing, settlements and/or donation.
