This inspection was performed upon the request of the client listed above on March 23, 2022 while the vessel was hauled at Driscoll Boatworks Shelter Island and afloat at Marriot Marquis Marina, slip XXXX, San Diego, CA and XXXX (owner), XXXX (client), XXXX (mechanic) and Kells Manthei (surveyor) attended.
Scope of Services
The vessel was examined by surveyor and/or surveyor’s agents from all accessible areas of the interior without removal of secured panels, destructive testing or disassembly. The hull bottom laminate, plating and/or planking was examined by percussion sounding and visual inspection only. No moisture content readings were taken, and no destructive testing was performed. The surveyor may have used a moisture meter if/when they deemed it useful or if specifically requested by client. Exterior hardware was visually examined for damage and drive components were tested by sight only. The inspection of engines, generators, machinery and related mechanical systems is not within the scope of this survey. Only a brief cursory inspection of the machinery was conducted, and no opinion of their overall condition was formed. Client shall retain the services of a qualified mechanic, engine surveyor or other expert to inspect such engine, generators, machinery and related mechanical systems. Tankage was inspected from visible surfaces only and no opinion was rendered as to their overall condition. On sailing vessels, the rig was not inspected aloft, nor were sails inspected unless they were visible during a sea trial. Client shall retain the services of a qualified rig surveyor or other expert to inspect sails, rigging and equipment. The electrical system was visually inspected where accessible, and electronic and electrical components powered only with permission of or in the presence of the vessel’s owner or agent. No in-depth testing or examination of the electrical system or electric schematic was conducted. Specifications were taken from published sources, measurements if made, should be considered approximate. The recommendations are based on federal and state regulations, industry standards, and/or surveyor’s own personal experience. The market value is based on research of available new/used comparable vessels, with consideration of geographic area where the vessel is located and reported sale prices where available. The surveyor will refer to and may reference CFRs, NFPA and ABYC recommendations (and/or other services) as the surveyor deems reasonable but not all regulations and recommendations will be applied nor should this report be relied upon as full compliance with the aforementioned entities. Every vessel inspection is different, and limitations may alter the scope of this survey, some limitations will be implied in the text of the report and some will be explicitly detailed. A Marine Survey Agreement which is reviewed and signed by the client details the terms governing this marine survey.

The current owner reported that the purchased the vessel in April 2020 in Los Angeles, CA. He reported that the engines and generator are original. He reported that the outdrives were replaced by Admiralty Marine by the previous owner (unsure when). He reported that the age of the bottom paint is unknown. He disclosed that he believes there is either a small oil leak on the port engine or it was overfilled at the last oil change. He has no knowledge of any significant events in the vessel’s history such as submersions, collisions, fires, etc. The vessel was inspected while hauled, afloat and underway on a sea trial in calm and sunny conditions in San Diego Bay, CA. The vessel is basically structurally sound and upon completion of the recommendations should be suitable for its intended purpose as a near coastal cruising vessel.
Overall Summary: Good

|ACTUAL CASH VALUE||NEW REPLACEMENT VALUE||INVESTMENT|
|Removed||Removed||N / A|
The actual cash value is the value that our research approximates the selling price of this vessel should be, at the time and place of our inspection. Consideration is given to vessel’s condition, geographic location, published listings and guides, comparable sales and listings, and market conditions. The new replacement value is the cost of this or a similar, new vessel, comparably equipped. The investment is the reported investment including purchase price and significant upgrades. No values include maintenance costs, storage or tax. The most relevant data found while researching the value is included below. We primarily use market value analysis methodology for determination of value.
Explanation of value opinion: The value we have placed on the vessel is based on the Soldboats.com reported sales prices, Yachtworld.com and Boattrader.com current listing prices below. The surveyed vessel is in good condition and exhibits active maintenance. There are no similar Jeanneau vessels listed for sale in California, so our research was expanded. The Jeanneau Leader 36 is a larger model express cruiser but is equipped with gasoline engines; gasoline engines typically hold less value than similarly rated diesel engines. The best comparable vessel is the vessel that sold for $285,000 in February 2022 in Santa Barbara, CA; this vessel is equipped with a bow thruster, however, which is a feature not on the surveyed vessel. The vessel is being sold with an inflatable tender; our value is on the vessel only and does not include the tender. The values of these vessels has continued on an upward trim due to the Covid-19 related demand and value spike.

|These recommendations are the surveyor’s ideas and suggestions for addressing deficiencies with damaged or suspect components or systems found during survey or general improvements. The primary recommendations address safety items, structural issues, operational issues or deficiencies which the surveyor determines are of greater importance or more expense than secondary deficiencies. For instance, items that pose a risk to passenger safety or immediate property damage are listed under primary deficiencies and cosmetic concerns are addressed under secondary deficiencies. Most of the recommendations have been addressed in the comments and usually they are discussed at the time of the inspection.|
- Maintain the fire extinguishers per NFPA recommendations. Extinguishers should be inspected and tagged annually and inspected by a qualified technician or replaced every six years. Replace the fixed fire extinguishers with USCG approved units as necessary or desired. The fixed units should function properly, including shutting off engines and blowers (if present).
- We encourage the installation of carbon monoxide alarms and smoke alarms.
- While the handheld distress strobe and distress signal flag are federally compliant signaling devices, we strongly recommend the carriage of current and approved distress signal flares.
- There are lock nuts in use on the battery terminal posts. ABYC prohibits the use of lock nuts on battery terminals. Replace with steel nuts and lock washers per ABYC recommendations.
- We strongly recommend applying a secondary securing mechanism for the anchor.
- We strongly recommend the carriage of a secondary anchor and rode for emergencies and two anchor situations.
- There is corrosion on both engines’ raw water pumps. Determine the cause of the corrosion, eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and clean the components to allow detection of future weeps, leaks and corrosion accumulation.
- A black hose for the steering system is resting on the port engine’s raw water pump housing and exhibits chafe damage. Determine the significance of chafe damage and either replace the hose or mount in a way to eliminate future damage to eliminate potential liabilities.
- The circuit breaker on the generator is loose and it is taped in place. Address appropriately to eliminate liabilities.
- There is minimal corrosion on the generator’s heat exchanger and corrosion in the drip pan. Determine the cause of the corrosion, eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and clean the components and area to allow detection of future weeps, leaks and corrosion accumulation.
- The port engine was observed leaking oil during the sea trial. We were unable to see it leak again after cleaning the area. Determine the cause of the oil leak and address appropriately.
- There is corrosion on the HVAC sea strainer. Determine the cause of the corrosion, eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and clean the components to allow detection of future weeps, leaks and corrosion accumulation.
- The “clam shell” external strainer for the HVAC is dented in. Determine the significance and address as necessary.
- There is impact damage and radiating stress cracks at the starboard corner of the transom. A sound difference was noted when percussion testing this area. Determine the significance of the sound difference and cracking and address as necessary or desired.
- There are radiating stress cracks to starboard amidships below the upper chine at the amidships cleat. Determine the significance of the cracks and address as necessary or desired.
- Address the corrosion on the opening portlight frames as desired.
- The toe rail is chipped at the starboard forward-most bow stanchion. Address as desired.
- The following components were not tested or inspected: freshwater pressure inlet, engine compartment heater, tender, ice maker, all functions of entertainment devices and navigational electronics (power up and basic functions were tested).
