FULL CONDITION SURVEYS

Full Condition Surveys are mostly required for insurance or (re)finance purposes.

If requested we can include a “replacement value for evaluation purposes only” in our Report.

In case a formal valuation is required we can be of service working together with INVACO/Van Ameyde Group.

 

PRE-PURCHASE CONDITION SURVEYS

This Survey gives potential buyers a good view on the current condition of the vessel in all aspects. Besides the technical condition of the hull and machinery all paperwork like Class/Flagstate/Marpol certificates and documents are checked. The suitability of the vessel for the intended purposes can be part of this Survey.
