Why do I need a Marine Survey?

Most insurance companies and financial institutions will require that you have a survey performed, especially on older vessels. They will need to know the overall condition and fair market value in order to finance or underwrite the vessel. It is also recommended that a survey be performed on any prospective vessel purchase, whether new or used.

The most important reason to survey your vessel is for the safety of the passengers and crew. I recommend that a survey be performed every two to three years.
