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.



We perform rigging inspections aloft based on a thorough visual examination with conventional type rigs. For larger yachts or those equipped with more exotic rigs we tend to employ the main local brand agent or local reputable rigger to inspect the rig aloft under our direction and supervision. By working under our supervision, we ensure that findings are conveyed to the client in a factual, objective and impartial manner.

It is recommended that standing rigging manufactured in Rod is dismantled and its components thoroughly inspected, on average, every four years or 35,000 nautical miles, whichever comes first, depending on the use of the vessel.

By applying a combination of various NDE methods (Ultrasound, Dye Penetrant, Optical, etc) we can assess the condition of most critical components, making sure that only those components that are faulty or suspicious are replaced, avoiding unnecessary costs and delays.


Furthermore, we are fully authorized
to carry out:



MCA Compliance Examinations, Annual & Mid-term Examinations, and Inclining Experiments for vessels in commercial use up to 24 metres (Load Line Length).

Specific consultancy is provided for larger vessel under LY2.
