Export Yacht Sales

I understand the purpose of a boat inspection and sea trail, but why have the survey?

The survey is usually an out-of-the-water examination of the vessel from stem to stern. The examiner provides a comprehensive written opinion on the condition of the yacht, which can run hundreds of pages. It covers everything imaginable from serious problems with the hull to minor notations of an out-of-date fire extinguisher. Copies of the survey report are provided to your financial lender and insurance carrier for their review. This gives them the condition of the vessel, its replacement value, and the surveyor's determination of its market value.
