Marine Survey


Yacht & Superyachts

 Marine Survey -  Refit - Project Management 

When it comes to investing in a yacht, it makes good financial sense to have your potential vessel surveyed by an experienced professional. Giovanni Bernardi has spent over 15 years in the refit and boat-building industries, which gives him a unique advantage when surveying a yacht or boat.

The staff at Yacht77 Marine Survey uses the latest in marine survey technology to examine vessels and determine their strengths and potential weaknesses, well below the surface. We can find unseen defects, hull distress and other major problems before you purchase your boat or yacht

What Type of Survey Do I Need?

Marine Surveys are performed for a number of reasons, and the procedures for each vary to best suit your needs:

Pre-Purchase Survey

This is the most comprehensive type of inspection, and is strongly advised when purchasing a new or used vessel. Condition and overall operation of the vessel should be examined. This covers structural integrity, electrical systems, the propulsion system, the fuel system, other machinery, navigation equipment, miscellaneous on-board systems, cosmetic appearance, electronics, and overall maintenance as well as an out-of-water inspection and a sea trail.

Insurance Survey

 This inspection is performed so that the insurance company can determine whether or not the vessel is an acceptable risk. They 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.

Appraisal Inspection

 This inspection is performed to gather enough information to justify or determine the fair market value of the vessel. This is normally needed for financing, estate settlements, donations and legal cases.

Damage Inspection

This is performed to assess the extent of damage, recommend repairs, estimate repair cost, and if requested, possible cause.
