From time to time your ship’s insurance company will require an inspection by a qualified surveyor to determine if the vessel is still an acceptable risk, based on the overall condition, on-board systems and structural integrity.
Pre-Purchase Condition Survey
Never buy a vessel without a survey. Before you commit to a contract or a deposit, simply assign a qualified surveyor to visit the vessel and have a good look around. The surveyor will then advise you whether or not to take the next step. That is a great way to save time -and money- for all parties involved.
Loss & Damage Survey
In case of damage due to collision, grounding or severe weather the insurance company assigns a surveyor to assess the extent and –if required- the cause of the damage.
