Why you need a Marine Survey

Having a Marine Surveyor look over the prospective vessel you are considering for purchase is just good common sense.  With the price and complexity of recreational vessels increasing every year it is more important now than ever to hire a good Marine Surveyor.


A Pre-Purchase Marine Survey can inform you of problems in the vessel's systems and structures that may require extensive and expensive repairs. The Pre-Purchase Marine Survey will help you decide if the vessel is right for you. Both old and new vessels are the subjects of a marine survey.  Older vessels may have extensive modifications and systems that have not been maintained or are in need of being renewed. New vessel marine surveys can uncover warranty problems that need to be addressed before the warranty runs out. Click on Pre-Purchase Survey link at the top of this page for more information. 


A Boat Insurance Survey is often requested by Insurance and Finance companies to determine the condition and value of your vessel or yacht. This type of survey will help your insurance or finance company determine if the vessel is an acceptable risk. Click on Insurance Survey link at the top of this page for more information. 


A Marine Appraisal or Valuation may be required to determine the fair market value of the vessel for estate settlements, donations and legal cases. We use USPAP guidelines in our valuations. Please call or write for more information.


A Marine Damage Inspection is performed to assess the extent of damage, recommend repairs, estimate repair cost and if possible to determine the cause of the loss. Please call or write for more information.


Some comments from our customers:


"I needed a survey performed many hundreds of miles from home and selected Tom based on his website. I was able to join him for the survey and found him both thorough and practical. Tom discovered a problem with the rudder and worked with us to help get a manufacturer warranty repair and returned to the boat after the repair to check on its quality. I would highly recommend Tom." TJ S. - Sabre 426


"Tom is an extremely professional and knowledgeable engineer who provided us with the most thorough boat survey. His accurate 31 page report detected numerous repairs that would have sank all of our boating dreams! We have now purchased another boat and highly recommend Latitude Marine. If you are looking for outstanding and trustworthy service, this is it!!!" George and Gen V. Deerfield Beach, FL - Luhrs 350 Convertible.


"I used Tom about a month ago. I found him to be very professional & complete. His 26 page report contained pictures, outside & down below. Any deficiencies were noted and singled out for correction. We skipped lunch to complete the job." Larry M. - Tartan 40
