Pre-Purchase Surveys and Valuation Surveys

Pre-purchase or valuation survey for yachtsA pre-purchase survey is a comprehensive inspection of all accessible areas of the vessel including hull structure, plumbing and electrical systems, an external inspection of engines and air handlers. This inspection is usually conducted both afloat and out of the water, in slings or on blocks. A critical component of this inspection is a short sea trial so that all systems can be observed in operation. Destin Marine Surveyor does not perform engine inspections. If a more comprehensive engine inspection is desired an engine surveyor or mechanic should be retained. Destin Marine Surveyor can supply contact information for engine mechanics and engine surveyors but it is the sole responsibility of each interested party to choose surveyors and mechanics.
