It's quick and easy.
Online forms make it quick and easy to arrange and book your yacht survey. I accept nearly all payment methods, including PayPal.
No expenses or travelling costs.
There are no additional costs for yacht surveys throughout Cornwall & Devon, and currently I don't charge VAT.
Detailed survey reports
Survey reports arrive quickly by email and/or post. They contain precise explanations of the yacht's condition and are supported with lots of photos.
With a background in boat building, yacht repair, fitout and servicing I am best placed to provide you with a thorough, in depth assessment of the vessel. Not only with regard to the structural integrity of the yacht but in relation to the systems onboard. Yacht and boats of all sizes have become increasingly more complicated and an ever increasing percentage of the value is within the systems onboard. Where possible all the systems are tested for functionality and inspected for suitable installation. I also use a range of specialist testing equipment to ensure you get the best yacht survey possible.
