Insurance Surveys

Insurance survey for boat or yachtAn insurance survey differs from a Pre-purchase survey only because some vessels are inspected while in dry storage or on blocks in a shipyard, precluding a sea trial and engine operation. Other vessels may be inspected in the water but the insurance company may not request the boat be hauled for a hull inspection. Insurance companies are interested mainly in the structural integrity and safety and fitness of the vessel for a specific intended use.
