When considering purchasing or selling a boat, it is always wise to enlist the services of a qualified marine surveyor 33413. These marine professionals can offer valuable insight into the condition of any vessel before making a large financial commitment, and assure that the boat is exactly as advertised. The costs involved in a marine survey from Suncoast Marine Surveying depend on several factors, including the size of the vessel being surveyed, the geographic location, the age and condition of the vessel, and the type of survey being performed.
A general “Condition and Value” survey from a marine surveyor 33413 typically ranges from $0.20 to $0.60 per foot of the vessel’s length. Smaller vessels may cost less than larger ones but a more detailed inspection will increase the rate. An older boat may also require additional attention due to wear and stress on existing systems. To ensure an accurate value estimate for insurance purposes, it is best to receive an accurate assessment of value prior to purchasing. Suncoast Marine Surveying has decades of experience providing non-biased valuation services for all types of vessels.
In addition to cost estimates based on the size and location of the vessel, extra fees are usually charged for any travel expenses incurred by a marine surveyor. These fees should be clearly outlined and agreed upon prior to any inspection trips being taken. It is important to remember that when using a professional service, most of the associated fees for ancillary services such as hauling, engine inspections, or zinc replacement should also be included in the quote. Once all associated costs have been factored in, you can make an informed decision regarding whether or not to proceed with the contract.
