What Our Clients Have to Say

Our Most In-Demand Long Beach Boat Survey & Boat Appraisal Services

Pre-Purchase Surveys

Buying a boat? Make sure you have a complete understanding of the condition of the vessel before you buy with this convenient service. We’ll study the boat carefully to ensure you are fully aware of its actual value.

Damage Surveys

We have the experience and knowledge to accurately assess damage to ensure you receive fair compensation from your insurance company and that you are also able to pursue the proper repairs. We’ll let you know just how damaged your boat really is so that you have a much better idea of what you need to do to keep it running safely and efficiently (if possible).

Insurance Surveys

To ensure your company makes the smartest underwriting decision on a Long Beach vessel, let us handle the insurance survey. We’ll carefully examine the boat and its current condition, which includes us identifying defects and damage. We’ll also look at the boat’s equipment and then accurately determine its value.


Appraisal Surveys

Here we give Long Beach boat owners a full analysis of a vessel’s value.
We inspect the boat thoroughly and produce a report that details its fair market value. This service is often provided for financing, estate settlements, divorces, donations, legal cases and more.


Engine Analysis

One thing all Long Beach boat buyers need to do is get a detailed analysis of a boat’s engine and generator before they buy. Failure to do this is virtually inviting unexpected costs and operational uncertainty. We eliminate the stress of not knowing how good an engine really is with our Long Beach engine analysis service. We will carefully examine the engine and generator so that there are no unpleasant surprises after the purchase.

Sea Trials

We test a boat’s propulsion systems and controls in real-life conditions to determine its real operational status. A sea trial is extremely important because vessels simply cannot be thoroughly assessed while inside a marina. They must be studied while out running on open water.

Our Guarantee

We guarantee our marine surveys to be accepted by your bank and insurance underwriter. If our survey is rejected due to the quality or limitations of the report, simply have the underwriter (not the agent or broker) forward us a letter on company letterhead stating the reason for the rejection, and the survey fee will be promptly refunded.


Fast Turnaround Time

We understand tight schedules.  Our report turnaround time is the fastest in the industry.  


Qualified Experts

We are experts in our field, a current NAMS Member,  and ABYC Certified in Marine Systems


Detailed Reports

Survey reports are guaranteed to be accepted by every known lender and insurance carrier
