Peace of mind

We understand the gravity and importance of a
yacht or motorboat purchase, so our
surveys provide you with the information you need
to make an informed purchase.

Where we travel

We have an international client base and regularly
travel to Europe and further afield.

Our Surveys

We know that we are only as good as our last survey, which is why every
appointment commands the same level of care and attention as the next,
no matter the size or value of the vessel. With over 20 years experience
in the marine industry, we have an eye for detail, and provide
no nonsense, easy to understand, accurate reports.
