What We Do
Ocean Marine Surveyors is proud to offer clients the most accurate, impartial, and confidential surveying and consulting services in Southern California.
A pre-purchase survey requires examining every facet of the boat without a tear down. The process prioritizes the most important aspects of the boat including all major systems. The more experienced, qualified, and educated a surveyor is, the higher quality of work that you will receive.
Surveys involve three major steps.
The purpose of a damage inspection is to determine the scope of damage and assist in the creation of a repair plan. Progressive inspections of the repair work are a common request, along with a final inspection of the completed repair work to help ensure repairs were done correctly.
Insurance Coverage Valuation
Insurance surveys are conducted to determine marine risk and value of a vessel, and are often used for re-insurance of vessel.
Financial Evaluation Surveys
An inspection to determine the vessel’s value is conducted primarily for refinancing, estate settlement, and divorce asset value.
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.
If you are planning to purchase a boat, a thorough inspection of the engine and generator installation is a virtual necessity.
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 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.
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.
