The Survey Process

The Survey Process

For Boats based in the UK and Mallorca

A pre survey contract is agreed and signed prior to the job. Martyn, our yacht surveyor, visits the boat at a time convenient to both parties to complete the survey. Martyn will happily survey a boat located at any location on the south coast of the UK and also boats located in Mallorca, Ibiza or Menorca. The boat must be fully accessible to the yacht surveyor on potentially more than one visit.

Go to our terms and conditions page.

Once the boat survey is complete the surveyor will produce the appropriate survey in English in an electronic and printed format along with relevant photographs. This process usually takes no longer than 48 hours.

The boat or yacht survey will consist of a general description of the condition of the boat plus four categories of recommendations of items requiring attention.

  • The first category requires attention before further use of the boat
  • The second requires attention but could wait until the boat is next ashore or laid up
  • The third category is purely cosmetic but would improve the value or look of the boat
  • The fourth category is general recommendations and comments
