Survey Rates:

A survey is more than a check list or inventory list which is why no two vessel surveys are the same.  Therefore the cost of a marine survey has many variables in arriving at a fair price, including but not limited to the size and type of survey, type of vessel, the materials it was constructed from, the type of work required of the surveyor and the location of the vessel. The vessel condition and the age of the vessel is also considered.  Evidently it takes much longer to survey a 15 year old boat with deferred maintenance than a three your old vessel in Bristol condition. Per foot rates are based on the vessels length overall (LOA)  including add-ons (i.e. swim platforms, watercraft lifts, etc). We use a scaled approach not to penalize smaller boats with fewer systems. 

Please review our Survey Preparation page for tips and expectations to minimize the cost of your survey while maximizing the content of the survey.  Each survey requires a signed contract and payment prior to the survey to ensure that all parties are aligned with expectations.
