  • FAQ's

    ¿Is it possible to Upgrade between Surveys?
    Yes, you can contract an Express one and finalize with the Premium, just paying the difference.

    ¿Is it possible to contract another kind of pre-purchase survey?
    Yes, we have our standard rates but we are flexible, we can design a custom made Survey for your needs. Contact us for more information.

    ¿Does the Survey report create a list of defects found during the inspections?

    Yes, a recommended work list will be included based on the equipment/items condition. This list will be classified by correction grade and it will be exposed with a clear nomenclature.

    ¿Can I use this list for negotiation purposes?
    Yes indeed, it is useful for discount purposes if this is the case.

    ¿Can I contract a Pre-purchase Survey without been present during the inspections?

    Yes, we will act on your behalf and we will carry out the survey at the same quality level. You will be informed on line constantly.

    ¿Do you contract directly hauling outs, pressure washings and/or antifouling treatments?
    No, once the survey is contracted, the extra expenses due to boatyard cost, hauling outs, maneuvers or services if needed will be specifically contracted by parties (purchaser/seller) and schedule/agenda sent to the Surveyor.

    ¿Do you check out if the yacht has Osmosis?
    We check the moisture readings on the underwater area together with an accurate visual inspection. If it is known or there are some evidences that osmosis/hydrolysis have affected the hull, we will advice to carry out a destructive test based on samples reaching beyond gel coat. This is an extra process that will require more days on hard and it is included on Premium rate or can be quoted separately.
