A Marine Survey is a comprehensive and detailed inspection of all aspects concerning the current condition and fair market value of the vessel inclusive of its systems, equipment, safety compliance, and general maintenance.
Destructive and/or intrusive testing is not conducted. Findings and recommendations are detailed using mandatory standards provided by the Code of Federal Regulations and United States Navigation Rules, and recommended practices contained in standards of the American Boat & Yacht Council and the National Fire Protection Association. Among resources utilized to determine fair market value are the BUC price guide, the NADA marine appraisal guide, internet and marine publications resources, and personal knowledge of your local market. A vessel description with digital photographs is also provided in the survey report.
