'Richard has surveyed a number of vessels for me, and I must say the advice and the service have been second to none. Had it not been for their professionalism and skill I would have paid good money where I should not. I cannot thank them enough'.

Welcome to Precision Yacht Surveying

Independent Marine Surveyors of Sailing Yachts and Motor Boats

Precision Yacht Surveying are UK independent qualified marine motor boat surveyors. Services include; pre-purchase motor boat surveys, insurance yacht surveys, conducting surveys on wooden hull yachts & superyachts. Helping to make your pre-purchase boat or yacht a safe, hassle free purchase.

My objective is to keep you safe and protect your monetary investment.  I can offer a full range of surveying services, tailored to your needs.

Sailing yachts and motor yachts come in all shapes, sizes with modifications by owners or professionals.  Every boat should be treated as an individual.

I have experience and proficiency in the all types of construction materials. Although most boats are GRP, the work I carry out as a superyachts surveyor and on commercial vessels gives me experience in steel, aluminium and carbon fibre.

A technical survey report based on tangible findings and investigations will be provided.  The survey is a methodical process where each area is systematically assessed.  During the yacht or boat survey we will crawl into every nook and cranny possible and test everything that can be tested.

Although I am based on the South Coast of England I can travel to anywhere in the world.  As a seasoned traveller and I am familiar with popular yachting locations and the best way to get there.

I am a qualified yacht surveyor through the Institute of Marine Surveying and I have professional indemnity insurance and third party liability insurance.
