The short answer is to stay alive, both physically and financially. The open water can be a treacherous place that is constantly subjected to the whims of weather and Lady Luck.
Hiring a Marine Surveyor will give you that Peace of mind. It will give you a better idea of exactly what you are investing in and help you learn what will be necessary to maintain it in the future. The Marine Survey will help to keep you and your family safe and your investment secure.
The longer answer is that certain types, makes, and models of vessels have recurring problems or requirements. An experienced Surveyor will be familiar with these particular vessels and be able to advise you on the long-term suitability of your intended purchase. Particularly in relation to how and where you will be using it.
In addition, it is unlikely that you will be able to secure Insurance or Financing without providing the Underwriters with an acceptable Survey. With this in mind we recommend you that you make the full Pre-Purchase Survey a condition of purchase in the beginning of the purchase process.
Experience is everything in regards to trusting an Engine Surveyor. One should seek out a Surveyor with a qualified education and practical experience. A Surveyor with diplomas, Certifications, and Accreditations relative to their field of expertise. A Qualified Engine Surveyor will have these important Accreditations and Certified Credentials, along with referrals and a solid reputation. Ask, you have the right!
Good luck in your search. We wish you Safe & Happy Boating!
