When might you benefit from the assistance and the advice of a surveyor?
- If you are interested in a boat for sale in the West Indies (Martinique, Guadeloupe, Saint-Barthélemy, Les Saintes, Saint-Martin, Saint-Lucia, Dominica, Saint-Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Trinidad etc…) and travel is too expensive and/or you do not have enough time. Our surveyor is already in the area and can proceed with a pre-expert assessment in order to give you an argued opinion depending on your specifications, along with photos.
- You wish to buy a pleasure boat and wish to be guided in choosing the right model for you. After having picked a few out, you wish to save time without making any mistakes and benefit from an expert’s advice.
The boat you have selected can then undergo a detailed expert assessment (similar to a pre-transactional assessment) including a condition review and an estimation of the market value, helping you in your choice. In that case, 50% of the preliminary visit fees will be deducted.
- You are having your sailboat or motor boat convoyed by a skipper or shipped by cargo to or from the West Indies (Martinique, Guadeloupe, Saint-Barthélemy, Les Saintes, Saint-Martin, Saint-Lucia, Dominica, Saint-Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Trinidad etc…) and you cannot be present for sending or reception and wish for our surveyor to assess the condition of the boat prior to/following transport. Our surveyor is already in the area and can carry out a leaving/reception expert assessment in order to make a report of the condition of the boat, including photos, which may have a legal function in the case of a dispute.
NB 1: This is a preliminary expert assessment which serves to assist, guide and potentially represent a party. This advice and assistance expert assessment is not a detailed technical expert assessment, nor is it a market value estimation of the boat, or a dynamic trial and cannot be used as a reference during a transaction.
NB 2:The surveyor remains completely independent, and will not give in to any kind of pressure or influence, of whatever nature it may be. He gives his opinion in all consciousness, with no concern of what might follow.
The naval preliminary expert assessment:

Fees: Deduct 50% if you also order a pre-transactional expert assessment of the boat.
