INSURANCE EVALUATION SURVEY
What better way to avoid disappoints and major warranty problems than having a new yacht fully inspected by an expert surveyor. New yacht surveys should take place prior to taking delivery and making final payment so that you will have sufficient leverage to ensure that there is little resistance to correcting problems.
The following are the objectives of a new yacht survey.
To check whether the vessel has been built according to the builder's specification, classification regulations and certificates (if applicable), including all installations and equipment. To locate any deficiencies that are related with structural, technical or other defects affecting safety, seaworthiness or strength that may require immediate attention and deficiencies that are related with cosmetic and other less-essential defects.
To follow the same basic procedure as a pre purchase survey, including a sea trial.
