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:

  • Is a global visual assessment of the accessible parts, is non-invasive and requires no dismantling

A report of the naval preliminary expert assessment is drawn up:

  • It will be sent to you a maximum of 5 working days after the end of the final visit.

  • Our surveyor’s opinion and advice will be supported by photos, potential recommendations about reconditioning or necessary check-ups.

  • The preliminary visit report will be sent to you by air mail and electronically (PDF document)

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

For subscription to insurance, for customs, for shared-property transactions or for a succession: estimation of the market value of the ship and its equipment

In which cases will an evaluation expert assessment be required?

  • An expert assessment including estimation of the market value of your sailboat or motor boat (estimated depending on its construction quality, its age, maintenance, quotation, fitting out, the potential reconditioning costs and the market price at the time of the expert assessment) will be required by your insurer. This pre-insurance expert assessment is carried out to subscribe to a first insurance or to sign a contract renewal.
  • Depending on the insurance contract, the insured value of your boat will be the agreed value from the day the contract was signed or the market value the day of an accident or damage
  • This type of naval expert assessment report may also be required by funding bodies, by customs while returning from tax exemption, or by shared-property holders for a succession or a share transaction.

NB : This preliminary expert assessment is intended to estimate the market value of a ship and/or its equipment and not to assess condition in detail, sailability, or to try out the correct functioning, including equipment. Therefore, this evaluation expert assessment may not be used as a reference as for the condition or the sailability of the boat.

Pre-transactional expert assessment

Condition and sailability report and estimation of market value

Prior to purchase, this type of expert assessment will enable you to:

  • Know the actual detailed condition of the boat. The expert assessment is similar to an “MOT” or “Vehicle inspection test” (visual report and investigations, measurement of the eventual case of osmosis, search for corrosion, delaminating, visual inspection of the spars and rigging, dynamic trial). An oil check and a wall thickness measurement by ultrasonic on metal hulls (steel, aluminium…), depending on the case, are recommended.
  • Know the value of the boat as well as the potential reconditioning costs.
  • Guarantee the durability and serenity of your investment (technical opinion and recommendations)
  • Insure the boat (report on the sailability and market value for insurance purposes)

Prior to sale, having your boat assessed by an expert will enable you to:

  • Rapidly find a buyer
  • Establish an atmosphere of trust
  • Sell your boat in the best conditions and reach its price on the estimation of the expert.

NB: The price of an expert assessment generally equals less than 1% of the value of the boat.

The naval expert assessment visit:

  • Is preferably held in the presence of the owner or his representative.
  • A top quality assessment will necessarily include both an off-shore visit and a dynamic trial, as well as a “dry” visit, both of them being included in the package
  • Is a detailed visual inspection of the accessible parts, it is non intrusive and requires no dismantling. A complete inspection would require a technical preparation consisting in the complete dismantling of the equipment, the inner plating and everything that would keep the whole of the ship from being accessible. These steps are long and costly and are only undertaken under special circumstances.
  • The boat must have been dry for at least one week in able to measure the humidity level (Tramex osmosis test)
