Do you perform any checks on the engine?

Within the boat survey checklist, some engine parts will be examined, for condition, and insurability. Many boat surveys are carried out on the hard and the engine is not run during the survey. If a seatrial is included, then more tests can be carried out, but this is a simple test and not a guarantee of the engine’s condition. Commissioning a mechanical engineer to look at the engine before completing the sale is always the safest option.
