For those Individuals purchasing boats it could be a very important investment and everyone should have an inspection done prior to the purchase. We have been doing marine surveys on boats for over 20 years and are very well aware of the issues surrounding boats which being moisture saturation in boats. Many individuals have very little or no knowledge as to what to look for, or where to look when purchasing a boat.
It has been in the last few years that insurance companies are requiring surveys to be performed on boats that are a certain age, usually over 15 years old. In the same way that appraisals are required for classic car insurance, surveys are required for older boats so that insurance companies know what they are insuring. If you are purchasing a boat slip for the summer to dock your boat or storing your boat at the marina for the winter, the marina usually wants proof of insurance coverage by the owner. When you are using the boat in the waterways it would be obvious that you would want liability insurance in case you damaged someone else’s boat or property or injured a human.
In the event that you just want a second opinion for purchasing a boat before you make a bad decision, it is wise to have an inspection done on the boat that you are about to purchase to determine if you are making a good investment, and you will not be faced with huge repairs in the future after purchase.
Whether you require an insurance inspection report, or for peace of mind verbal report, we will perform the same inspection procedures on the boat. We will utilize a moisture meter reader to measure the moisture content of the boat and do a tap test on the inside and outside of the hull. We have found many boats to be saturated with moisture or water, thus saving an individual from making a mistake with the purchase of the boat.
The boat will also be needed to be equipped with all the necessary safety equipment as required by law. The report for the insurance company will also include any necessary recommendations or requirements that have to be met, or necessary repairs that need to be performed prior to the boat to be made seaworthy.
