Get an Unbiased, Professional Opinion on a Vessel’s Condition and Market Value
A Condition and Value survey is the most comprehensive assessment that helps you determine the overall condition of a vessel with respect to nationally recognized standards.
Whether you want to buy or sell a vessel, our expert marine surveyors in St. Paul, Minnesota, and the surrounding area, will help you make a well-informed decision by providing a snapshot of the vessel’s structures and systems on a particular day in a detailed report.
Insurance and financing companies usually require a condition and value survey of the vessel to gauge the coverage level if it is damaged or lost.
What to Expect from a Condition and Value Survey
Our standard condition and value survey includes the following:
- Thorough vessel inspection in and out of the water for electronic moisture detection, depending on the build material.
- Evaluation of the condition of the vessel’s hull, deck, AC and DC electrical systems, steering and controls, plumbing fittings, fuel systems, and safety equipment.
- Rigging investigation and sea trials.
- Non-invasive examination of engines.
The detailed survey report will include photographic records of the vessel’s condition and provide recommendations for maintenance, repair, and safety checks. You’ll also get a current market value estimate to influence your buying/selling decision.
