We have both worked extensively on commercial and pleasure craft as well as maintaining our own boats. We specialize in performing pre-purchase, insurance, and damage marine surveys for pleasure and commercial power and sailing vessels. Our surveyors provide prompt professional service and generally complete the survey report within 48 hours of the survey.
