Insurance Survey

This is required by underwriters and asked of owners from time to time depending on the boat’s age and date of previous survey. The insurers may ask for specific elements to be covered in the survey, but generally it will be similar in approach to the pre-purchase, although focussing on the aspects of the boat that affect its insureability. This survey does not offer the advice and full condition report that a pre-purchase survey would offer and it should be noted that most insurance companies insist the survey is carried out by a yacht surveyor who is a member of one of the acknowledged associations like the YDSA or RINA. Our principal yacht surveyor is a member of both.
