When ever you are buying a boat it is always recommended that you get a professional survey done. It can be a big investment and you should be sure that what you are buying is what is being sold. We can offer a comprehensive condition survey so you can be aware of the true condition of your purchase. We can also undertake condition surveys for insurance purposes if your insurer requires this at renewal which periodically they often do.
Accidents happen, and as such there may be times when you require advice or guidance on how to fix it. We can survey the damage and advise you on the best way to repair.
Our services can be undertaken on both private and commercial vessel. We could just be your one stop shop.
Small Commercial Vessel Coding
We work through MECAL, an appointed certifying authority for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency to conduct survey work leading to commercial certification on small commercial vessels. If you have a vessel that works or that you are intending to work commercially that is under 24m load line length and will carry no more than 12 passengers we can help you gain the correct commercial certification to work your vessel. We work with a vast array of clients already looking after their certification including Milford Haven Port Authority and Svitzer to name only a couple.
Risk Assessments and Safety Systems
As commercial operators and especially lately within the commercial fishing industry and the introduction of ILO 188, risk assessments and safety systems have become paramount and will be looked for when vessels are inspected by flag surveyors. This paperwork may seem a bit daunting and as such we can help sort out what needs to be done. We can help you produce your risk assessments and safety systems and if required undertake regular reviews and audits of your systems as required. Compliance need not be daunting when we can help.
We offer a complete range of consultancy solutions within the marine world.
