What Our Clients in the Los Angeles Area Have to Say

Our Services

Pre-Purchase Surveys

A boat or ocean vessel can be one of the most expensive purchases you will make. Let us help you with your decision.

Damage Assessments

Determining the level of damage is critical to any inspection.  We can help ensure you have an accurate assessment.

Insurance Coverage Valuation

We identify the vessel, its equipment, condition and general value while inspecting for defects and damages.  Let us help you make smart underwriting decisions.


Pre-Purchase Surveys

This is the most comprehensive inspection of a vessel. The purpose of the survey is to gather as much information about the condition of the vessel before purchase.


Engine Analysis

If you are planning to purchase a boat, a thorough inspection of the engine and generator installation is a virtual necessity. 


Insurance Surveys

Designed to help insurance underwriters make underwriting decisions based on the condition and general value  of the vessel.


Marine Vessel Appraisals

Vessel appraisals consist of an inspection and report designed to provide you with thoroughly researched fair market value.


Cargo Damage Reports

When a vessel or cargo sustains damage, it’s important that you notify your insurance company to assign a surveyor.  We will assess the damage and a list of recommended repairs.


Sea Trials

The goal of any sea trial is to test the propulsion systems and controls in real-life conditions.  Sea trials are important as vessels cannot be thoroughly assessed while inside a marina.

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.
