What Our Clients Have to Say

Our Most In-Demand Newport Beach Marine Surveys

Pre-Purchase Surveys

If you are buying or selling a boat and want to receive a clear indication of its condition and value, this is the service for you. We will thoroughly inspect the vessel’s hull, its structural integrity, its safety equipment and its onboard systems. We are known for creating high quality surveys that leave all parties in a deal satisfied.

Damage Surveys

In this survey, we carefully assess the damage sustained by your boat and then provide projections for both repairs needed and the cost of those repairs. Boat damage can create a lot of uncertainty. We clear up that uncertainty and allow you to fully understand what to expect going forward. We can also determine the probable cause of the damage.

Insurance Surveys

Looking to underwrite a Newport Beach vessel? Don’t do anything until you receive a survey from us! We will inspect the boat’s structure, systems and equipment and provide you with the comprehensive and accurate information you need to make the best underwriting decision. Our survey includes pertinent identification information for future reference along with assurance of compliance with federal regulations.


Appraisal Surveys

Often this service is needed as part of a donation, a legal case or a divorce or estate settlement. We will perform a deep inspection of the boat, including its structural integrity, its safety equipment and its onboard systems. We will then use our findings to create a report that details the condition and tabulates an accurate value for the vessel.


Sea Trials

Our experts will take your boat out into open water to perform maneuvers that test its propulsion systems and controls in real-life conditions. This trial will give you a true understanding of your boat’s operational status. After the trial, we will present you with a detailed report that includes any safety, maintenance and repair recommendations that may be needed.

Our Guarantee

We guarantee our marine surveys to be accepted by your bank and insurance underwriter.
