As a boat surveyor in Cork, we carried out services mostly for private clients prior to the purchasing of a new yacht or motor boat – Pre-Purchase Surveys, but further condition reports can be necessary for insurance purposes – Insurance Renewal Surveys, or when damage has occurred to a vessel – Damage Reports.

Being a boat surveyor in Cork, we see that our most popular survey option is the Pre-Purchase Survey which includes a full inspection of the boat out of the water and also, where possible, sea trials in the water. Inspection of the boat can take anywhere from 3 hours to a full day depending on the type of boat and the complexities of the systems onboard. The report will normally be emailed directly to the client after the completion of the survey; it can also be sent by post if required. Additionally, as a boat surveyor in Cork, we are often asked about our Insurance Renewal Survey. This is required by insurance companies to assess the condition of a boat once it reaches a certain age and periodically thereafter. This report is similar to the pre-purchase survey above but with less detail of a cosmetic nature. Our reports give priority recommendations, which are generally what the insurance company are interested in but also secondary recommendations, which can be less urgent but are things you, the owner, would want to be aware of.
