Pre-purchase survey

We conduct thorough pre-purchase inspections to empower you with vital information to make an informed purchase decision. It’s a non-destructive inspection of the vessel to check its condition, check its systems for basic operation and adherence to applicable regulations and standards. The three main reasons to do a pre purchase inspection before you buy any new or used vessel. First, to determine the value and overall condition to set a fair purchase price; second, you may use the appraisal from a to provide to your insurance company in order to obtain a marine policy; and thirdly, to alert the new owner to possible future maintenance or repair concerns that they can’t see, that they should factor into their decision to buy or not buy any particular boat. The pre purchase inspection includes the following:

  • A comprehensive in and out of water inspection of the vessel’s structure and condition

eCMID Logo  eCMID Inspections

The Common Marine Inspection Document (eCMID) provides a standard format for inspection of offshore vessels, including large ships right down to smaller workboats.

The purpose of this process is to provide a structure for the audit, or inspection of commercial vessels used in the offshore industry, conducted by vessel inspectors working on behalf of owners or clients. The aim of the eCMID system is to provide three measures of vessel safety and environmental assurance; the safety of personnel; the protection of the environment; and to visually assess the internal integrity of the vessel’s hull (watertight integrity). The inspection is planned and undertaken in liaison with the vessel owner and completed by our competent and accredited eCMID vessel inspector.
