Pre-Purchase Survey

A Pre-purchase survey is a (C&V) survey with a complete inspection of the hull, including the bottom, and in most cases should include a sea trial. This is the most complete survey and is recommended when purchasing a used vessel. The overall condition of the vessel,  equipment, and engines will be assessed. This inspection will also determine the fair market value and condition of the vessel.

Condition & Valuation Survey

C&V surveys are usually needed by insurance companies and financial institutions to determine the condition and value so that the amount of insurance coverage or financing needed can be determined. This type of survey can also be used to determine the fair market value of a vessel for Estate purposes or to value a vessel which may be donated to a Charitable organization.
