TYPES OF SURVEY

The experience achieved by annually surveying over 120 luxury yachts worldwide ranging from 30 to 200 feet in length is our distinctive asset. Our expertise covers most types of construction media from steel and aluminium Megayachts to carbon fibre racing machines, and 100+ years old classic wooden yachts.

From traditional sailing rigs to high-performance waterjet powered vessels we always endeavour to provide our clients with factual, fully-comprehensive, high quality Survey Reports.
