This inspection was performed upon the request of the client listed above on September 21, 2021 while the vessel was hauled and afloat at The Boatyard, Marina del Rey, CA and XXX (owner), XXX (client) XXX (broker) and Kells Christian (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.

Comments: The engines and transmissions were visually inspected and tested during a sea trial.  The survey is not a mechanical survey; please consult with a qualified technician for greater detail as to the condition of the machine systems.  The external surfaces and peripheral components of the engines and transmissions / sail drives appear satisfactory.  There is corrosion below the port sail drive’s through hull valve and on the shift bracket.  There is minimal corrosion below the starboard engine aft.  One filter is dated 8/10/19.  There is trace water aft of the port engine.  The hours on the meters are reportedly accurate for the new engines and the hours were recorded prior to the sea trial and survey.  The current owner reported that the engines were replaced in late 2018 as part of a new Volvo recall.  The sail drives were not replaced.  There are no engine oil, temperature or voltmeters.  During the seatrial, the starboard engine’s overheat alarm sounded and displayed visually on the digital display on the tachometer.  We noted a reduction in waterflow at that time.  Wide open throttle was tested very briefly and registered 2,750 rpm on both tachometers.  The engine controls functioned normally.  The port engine control is more stiff than the starboard engine.  The exhaust system is properly arranged and installed.  The sail drives and propellers were visually inspected and the propellers were manipulated.  The sail drives appear satisfactory externally; there is minor corrosion about the water inlets.  The starboard propeller exhibits significant corrosion and pitting.  Both propellers exhibit play when manipulated, between the blades and the hub, more significantly to starboard.  Both propellers exhibit play when lifted, between the propellers and the shafts.  The steering system was visually inspected and test operated.  The steering system functioned normally.  The through hulls were visually inspected and the valves were manipulated.  The through hulls are in satisfactory condition.  There is corrosion on and about several of the through hulls in the bilge, including waste discharges, refrigeration and the head inlets.  There are salt crystals on a valve, in a hose that connects to the port head supply hose (T fitting) and the valve is not secure.  The starboard head inlet has a T fitting which is loose on the through hull, uses a PVC valve and has a hose for an unknown purpose.  The refrigeration through hull has a hose connected for an unknown purpose.  The seawater systems were visually inspected and most components were tested.  Overall, the seawater systems are in satisfactory condition.  The electric bilge pumps were energized with toggle switches; the automatic functions were not tested.  The manual bilge pumps were manipulated but not tested for function.
Summary: Satisfactory 




Fuel: Plastic tank in locker to port of windlass, 88 gallon capacity (listing)
Fill & vent: Deck fill fitting to port forward of windshield, labeled “diesel”, fill hoses not inspected
Feed & return: Marine fuel hose (labeled CE, not labeled USCG), Racor filters

Water: Deck fill fitting to starboard forward of windlass, labeled “water”, plastic tank in locker to starboard of windlass, 118 gallon capacity (listing)

Holding: One deck fitting on each side of deck forward of mast, labeled “waste”, two plastic tanks (reported not seen), 20 gallon capacity (only one tank on listing)


Comments: The fuel system including the tank, fill, vent, feed and return lines was visually inspected as installed.  Where visible the fuel system components are in good condition. The condition and age of the fuel (and water) and the integrity of the tanks (fuel, water, holding) and hoses is beyond the scope of this survey.  The fuel hoses are labeled “fuel”; they are not labeled per US convention.  Please consider filling all tanks for a simple, practical test of their integrity.  The water pressure system functioned normally.  Accuracy of tank level gauges is beyond the scope of this survey.  There is a stain below a fitting on the water heater.  The starboard waste Y valve is marked “backwards”.  The starboard head was not drawing water.  The port head pump leaks water.  There is water on top of the water tank.  A small portable plastic diesel tank is not secured; it is on top of the primary diesel tank.  The diesel heater is reportedly inoperative and was not tested.
Summary: Satisfactory




AC system: 30A / 125V / 60Hz and 16A / 230V / 50Hz shore power inlets to port aft, 120 / 230 volt system
DC system: One West Marine AGM79 12 volt battery in both engine rooms, four battery switches in starboard engine room, five battery switches in port engine room, four West Marine AGM105 12 volt batteries (plus one battery not inspected) forward below interior bridge deck bench seat, battery switch by chart table, 12 volt system
Wiring: Mostly original multi-strand wires
Circuit protection: Four 50 and 60 Hz AC circuit breakers in port engine room, AC branch circuit breakers below chart table, DC overcurrent protection located at several boxes (not inspected)


Comments: The electrical system including the shore power cord, shore power inlet, batteries, wiring, circuitry components and circuit protection equipment was visually inspected and most components were tested.  Overall the electrical system is in satisfactory – good condition.  The condition and age of the batteries is beyond the scope of this inspection.  The vessel has 50 and 60 Hz AC electrical systems and the 50 Hz system was not tested.  The engine room battery terminals are not covered.  One starboard engine room battery cable has exposed conductors near the terminals.  The port engine room light functioned intermittently.  The AC electrical outlets exhibited problems including reverse polarity and an open ground, with both shore power and the inverter.  The vessel was unplugged during our test and we did not specifically note which outlets had which deficiency with shore power versus inverter power.  The Mastervolt panel at the chart table is inoperative.  The multifunction device exhibits depth but has no sounder feature.  The DC branch circuit breakers are reportedly in groups in several places throughout the vessel; they were not inspected or tested.  We could not release the ratchet strap on one battery on the starboard side of the battery bank below the interior bridge deck bench seat and this battery was not inspected.  The battery charger to port below the interior bridge deck bench seat is not secure.  The starboard refrigerator’s light is inoperative.
Summary: Satisfactory 




Portable fire extinguishers: European units, one on exterior bridge deck locker, one in starboard hull, one at navigation station, one in galley

The vessel is a composite fiberglass Catamaran sailing vessel equipped with two diesel engines and sail drives.  The vessel was built in La Grande Motte, France to a Barreau/Neuman design.  The current owner purchased the vessel new and took delivery at the factory.  He stated that the vessel was sailed to Fort Lauderdale, FL and came to the West Coast of the United States in 2016.  Since arrival the vessel has mainly been used to and from Catalina.  The current owner reports that the engines were replaced in late 2018 and he installed the external freezer.  He stated that most of the other components are original.  He disclosed that the water maker is pickled and later he disclosed that the diesel heater was never connected or functional.  The current owner disclosed no knowledge of any significant events in the vessel’s history such as submersions, collisions, fires, etc.  He was unsure of the cause of the damage to the starboard bow.  The vessel was inspected while afloat, underway offshore Los Angeles and while hauled.  The vessel is basically structurally sound.  The vessel is mostly stock with very little additions.  The vessel is suitable for its intended purpose as a coastal cruising vessel and potentially as a blue water cruising vessel.


Overall Summary: Satisfactory – Good


Standard form key:     We use subsection and overall ratings to summarize conditions found, based upon their appearance.  Ratings include: Not examined, Not applicable, Faulty, Marginal, Satisfactory, Good, Excellent.









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 is based on the soldboats.com reported sale prices and the yachtworld.com list prices below.  The owner’s asking price (also below) is in line with the asking prices of comparable boats.  The Outremer line is limited in production, compared to the catamarans commonly used in charter and several of the listings include those vessels, which are less valuable, thus there are fewer comps.  The best comp is the 2015 vessel that sold in Annapolis in August 2020 for $700,000.  That vessel is comparably equipped and has HVAC, but the market has continued to rise due to the Covid-19 induced demand.

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.



  1. Provide all legally required carriage items including federally approved extinguishers, personal flotation devices and distress signal flares.  Also required are oil and garbage placards and a waste management plan.
  2. Provide a secondary anchor and rode for use in two anchor situations or emergencies.
  3. Maintain the EPIRB per the manufacturer’s recommendations, the battery and the hydrostatic release have expired.
  4. The last three digits of the HIN does not follow US format, address as necessary.
  5. We encourage installation of smoke, carbon monoxide and propane alarms, particularly in conjunction with the propane system and in compliance with ABYC recommendations.
  6. We encourage the installation of an electric solenoid valve in the propane system to allow the flow to be shut off from the galley and to comply with ABYC and NFPA recommendations.
  7. Remove the small propane canister from the galley cabinet, store propane in the propane locker and secure the portable bottles.
  8. A filter on the starboard engine was dated 8/10/19, assure the engines and sail drives are maintained appropriately.
  9. There are various problems with the propellers, including corrosion and pitting on the starboard propeller, play between the propeller blades and the hubs and play between the propellers and the propeller shafts.  Have these components inspected by a qualified technician and repair or replace as necessary.
  10. The starboard engine overheated and alarmed during the sea trial, assure that the condition causing the overheating is eliminated and that there was no damage or address appropriately.
  11. The starboard head was not drawing water, address it and prove it properly functional.
  12. Properly secure the small portable plastic diesel tank.  This is apparently for the diesel heater and the diesel heater is inoperative.  Either prove the diesel heater functional and utilize the heater or eliminate liabilities such as the fuel supply to the heater.
  13. There is corrosion on several through hulls in the bilge, remove corrosion, inspect, service or replace components as necessary.  Through hulls with corrosion include: port sail drive, both waste discharge through hulls, refrigeration cooling through hull and both head inlets.
  14. There are salt crystals on a valve that junctions with the port head seawater supply and the valve is unsecured.  Eliminate the source of the salt crystals, remove the salt crystals to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks and secure the valve.  Assure that all the components use materials designed and intended for this application including barbed hose connections and suitable material, replace if/as necessary.
  15. Cover the batteries in the engine to prevent accidental short circuiting.  Comply with ABYC recommendations.
  16. Service and prove the port engine room light reliably functional, it functioned intermittently.
  17. There was either reversed polarity or an open ground at all of the AC electrical outlets that were tested.  Assure that the outlets and the electrical system are properly wired to American standards with both the shore power and inverter.  Assure the vessel has suitable GFCI or ELCI protection per ABYC recommendations.
  18. The Mastervolt controller at the chart table is inoperative, service or replace it and prove it properly functional (the current owner ordered one of these units during the survey).
  19. Properly secure the unsecured battery charger to port below the interior bridge deck dinette seat.




  1. Service and prove the light in the starboard refrigerator properly functional, it did not illuminate.
  2. We did not and could not release a ratchet strap on a battery to starboard of the battery bank below the interior bridge deck dinette seat, modify so that this device can be released, inspect the battery and cables and address any deficiencies.
  3. We did not inspect any of the DC overcurrent protection devices, they are reportedly located in several different locations, inspect and maintain these components as a matter of normal maintenance.
  4. The multi-function device has no sounder.  It does have a fathometer, upgrade if / as desired.
  5. One of the battery cables on the starboard engine room battery has exposed conductors at the terminals, improve the installation of the terminal ends so they cover the conductors and comply with ABYC recommendations.
  6. There is trace water aft of the port engine, determine the source, eliminate the source and remove the water to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  7. There is corrosion at and about the port sail drive’s through hull fitting, eliminate any existing cause, address corrosion, clean and paint as  appropriate to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  8. There is minor corrosion of the sail drive housings at the water inlets, address appropriately.
  9. There are no engine instruments for oil pressure, temperature or volts, consider upgrading.
  10. The engines turned to 2,750 rpms at wide open throttle, however the wide open throttle test was only performed momentarily and the current owner decreased the rpms.  Assure that the engines turn to the designed wide open throttle specifications and address any deviation and assure they can run at that speed with no issues.
  11. There are stains below plumbing fittings on the water heater, eliminate the source, remove stains to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  12. The starboard waste Y valve is marked “backwards”, address appropriately.
  13. The port head pump leaks at the valve seal, eliminate the leak as desired or as necessary.
  14. There is water on top of the water tank, eliminate the cause and remove the water to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  15. We did not inspect all of the fuel hoses and the hoses that were seen are not labeled per US convention.  Monitor hoses and address deficiencies as desired or as necessary.
  16. The port engine controls felt more stiff than the starboard side, either address or monitor and address as necessary.
  17. There is corrosion on the port sail drive control cable bracket, eliminate any source, repair if / as necessary, clean and paint to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  18. There is corrosion below the starboard engine aft, including about the sail drive sealing ring, address appropriately.
  19. Determine the function of the various seawater hoses which have unknown functions including the hose connected to the refrigeration through hull and the two hoses “junctioned” into the head supplies, eliminate any liabilities associated with these components after their usage is determined and remote components are inspected.
  20. The port transom grab rail has a small dent, address as desired.
  21. The plastic vent covers for both engine rooms inboard aft on both hull sides are damaged, address as desired.  These vents will help prevent water entry into the engine rooms.
  22. There are color differences on the hull sides below the stanchions, apparently and reportedly due to fenders, the hull sides are oxidized, address these conditions as desired, they appear to be cosmetic in nature.
  23. There is a 6” rectangular color difference on the starboard hull side aft below the name, the cause is unknown, this appears to be cosmetic, address as desired.
  24. There is a “rough” repair up high on the starboard bow and an unrepaired small gouge through the gelcoat on the starboard bow below the waterline, address these conditions as necessary or as desired.
  25. There is minor coatings failure about the helm, address as desired.
  26. There is age related damage (apparently) to the sealant and bedding material on the cabin side windows, address appropriately.
