Pre-purchase Surveys

A pre-purchase survey is an important and essential component in the decision-making and purchase process when buying a yacht. Whether your purchase is your first step into yacht ownership or you are up or downgrading your current vessel, a thorough pre-purchase survey will allow for greater certainty in the quality and longevity of your purchase and will reduce anxiety and stress during your purchase.

Operating on Yachtwork’s mantra of the highest level of service and satisfaction, we conduct a thorough structural survey of your potential purchase. A clearly presented and no-nonsense report will highlight any issues or potential future issues with the vessel and its systems. We are also able to advise whether further specialists should be sought out for items such as engine surveys. Alongside our comprehensive report is guidance on value and the market to aid in your negotiation.

Legal Support & Warranty

At Yachtwork we are aware that, from time-to-time, yacht owners will have issues that may be covered by warranty. We are well versed in surveying yachts during warranty claims and can operate as surveyor for either owner or warranty-provider. Our extensive experience in yacht surveys, in combination with our reporting style and expertise in yacht build, refit and retro-fit projects means that Yachtwork is ideally placed to identify any issues and indicate how the warranty applies. In the unfortunate situation where the issue does not fall under warranty, Yachtwork can use their extensive experience to consult on the best route to repair.

Similarly, Yachtwork are often instructed by clients or their legal representatives to assist where litigation is ongoing. This can be as simple as fact-finding or confirming an opinion but can extend into complete support throughout the process and the provision of expert witnesses.

Project-related Surveys

Yachtwork have an enviable team of expert yacht project managers who are regularly employed to undertake and manage large scale projects on behalf of private and insurance clients. The project management expertise of Jim and his team allows for effective and hugely beneficial pre-project surveys to take place.

Before having any work done on a vessel, such as a refit or retro-fit, it is sensible to have a survey undertaken. This survey can provide the same in-depth insight as other types of surveys and benefits the client by highlighting complications that may arise further down the line. This survey has saved clients and their vessels a great deal of stress during previous projects. Remember that Yachtwork’s Project Management team are able to undertake an entire project on your behalf and have a proven track record of delivering superb results.

Marine Damage Reports

These often provide an accurate report on the damage to yachts and boats, as a result of storm damage, damage while docked, other vessels or personal accidents.

We will go over every aspect of boat, how it was damaged and are experienced in the knock-on effects of such damage. Once we understand the integrity of the vessel we can provide clear and concise methods to get it back on the water, or whether it should be written off.
