When it comes to the purchase or sale of a vessel, an important part of the process is having a marine survey performed by a qualified marine surveyor 33472. A maritime survey report provides an independent assessment of the condition of the vessel and presents a detailed analysis of its current value. Suncoast Marine Surveying has been providing professional marine survey services in the Florida area for years. Our team of experienced surveyors is certified by the Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors (SAMS) and adheres to their guidelines for all reports.
A typical marine survey report from Suncoast Marine Surveying covers a wide range of boat systems and components. This includes hull integrity, decking, stanchions and rigging, propulsion systems, electrical systems, safety, navigational and communication equipment, and interior accommodations, tanks, bilge, ballasting, and other aspects of seaworthiness. The marine surveyor 33472 will also inspect any additional items the customer requests such as the sails, accessories, canvas, anchors, etc. Depending on the type of vessel being surveyed, there may also be a more specific focus on certain areas such as Propeller Shaft Alignment and Prop Scanning.
The report will include any items that require repairs or replacement based on applicable industry standards and regulations. These will be noted in the report with a description and estimated cost. It is then up to the buyer/seller to decide which items will need to be addressed before closing. Photo documentation and infrared thermography can also be included in the surveyor’s report to provide further evidence of a vessel’s condition.
In addition to a detailed inspection, the boat surveyor will include notes and comments about the overall condition of the vessel. This includes general observations about the maintenance level, operational capability, and any potential problem areas they observed during their visit. The surveyor will also provide an estimated market value of the vessel based on its age and condition at the time of inspection.
At Suncoast Marine Surveying, we understand how important an accurate and thorough marine survey report is to both buyers and sellers. We strive to provide reliable and impartial information about each vessel so customers can make informed decisions.
