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. 

When you hire us to perform a Pre-Purchase Survey, you can rest assured that we will perform an in depth inspection of the vessel and its systems, so you know exactly what you are buying.
