Q: Why should I have a survey before I buy?

A: In order to avoid buying a vessel with unknown problems & are you paying a fair & reasonable price!

Q.: What if I have damaged my vessel and do not agree with the insurance carrier?

A: You should get a second independent Certified Marine Surveyor's opinion.  Don't take just the insurance carrier's surveyor's opinion.  Many carriers offer to have a second surveyor re-inspect & some require you to hire your own.

Q: Should I have a new survey if I am selling my vessel.

A: Yes, this gives the buyer that you have confidence that you are selling with a fair and reasonable price with honesty and integrity.

Also, you have peace of mind and a Really Great selling point!
