This inspection was performed upon the request of the client listed above on May 11, 2022 while the vessel was hauled at Driscoll Boatworks, Shelter Island and afloat in slip XXXX, Cabrillo Isle Marina, San Diego, CA and XXXX (client’s broker), XXXX (listing broker), XXXX (PacWest mechanic) 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.

|Bilge: Stained, salt and fluid|
|Comments: The vessel was inspected while hauled and afloat. The hull bottom was visually inspected and randomly sounded. The hull bottom is in good structural condition. The listing broker reports that the antifouling paint was applied one year ago at Marine Group Boatworks. There is minor localized damage to the anti-fouling paint above and below the waterline. There is a 4” x 1” (1/4” deep) gouge at the leading edge of the port keel, it has been painted over. There is staining from a deck fitting to starboard of the anchor locker. There are anomalies below the foredeck including paint differences in several locations, none appear significant. The hull sides and transoms were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The hull sides and transom are in good structural and excellent cosmetic condition. The hull sides were reportedly painted at the Marine Group Boatworks one year ago. There are former Florida registration number decals on the hull sides forward, there are no year decals and the vessel is reportedly documented. The current documentation was not aboard and the documentation number was not displayed. There are several dings about the anchor, both above and below the roller. The swim platform was not functional. There are shims above the port platform support, there are none to starboard. The starboard inboard latch is not on its pin and is not aligned with the outboard latch. There are cracks around the aft edge of the swim platform. There is a dull spot in the new paint below the “upper chine” between the vent fittings on the port side amidships. The strike rail portion of the rub rail is protruding to the port boarding gate. There is a dented vent cover on the port side aft. The port side drain fitting by the anchor roller appears cracked. There are several dings on the starboard rub rail amidships. The deck and superstructure were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The deck and superstructure are in satisfactory structural and cosmetic condition. The starboard side of the flybridge flexes underfoot, and there are audible differences when percussion testing this area. There is a 1” open void inboard on the lower starboard step up to the side deck. There are cracks about the portlight facing aft on the port side inboard on the lazarette and a small ding in this location. The faux teak decking is losing adhesion at many locations; it is discolored and hot underfoot (in the sun). There are many cracks in the gelcoat about the bow rail stanchion bases, some have rust stains. There is a 3” color difference, likely a repair, below the starboard flybridge enclosure panel. The sides of the flybridge have a different appearance, they are shiny and unfair. The exterior caulk seams about the deck and superstructure is discolored and failing. There is damage on the aft edge of the flybridge hardtop. The deck hardware including safety rails, mooring devices and hatches was visually inspected and most hatches and the port lights were opened and closed. Overall the deck hardware is in satisfactory condition. In addition to failure to operate there are other problems with the swim platform including bolts through the frame with loose nuts, bolts which are uneven for the hold down and the platform was reportedly run into by a jet ski. The tender was not tested, the tender cover is moldy and the zippers were stiff and not moved. There is a ding in the fiberglass transom and center transom on the tender. There is a vertical crack at the inboard aft corner of the propane locker. The port bow rail’s handrail is bent between the fourth and fifth form forward stanchions. The transom lift control’s plastic cover is damaged. There are cracks and rust about the bases and tops of the aft deck hard top supports. We did not open all of the deck enclosures and the hardware is weathered. The starboard foredeck fiberglass locker hatch’s latch is broken. There are cracks and rust about the foredeck hatch hardware. The aft hinge on the windlass cover hatch is loose. There is damage to the plastic guides for the overhead foredeck sliding hatch. There is corrosion and paint damage on most of the portlights. We could not open the outboard portlight in the aft cabin. We did not dig out the starboard forward storage locker; there are likely two through hulls below the components stored in this area. Many of the deck hatches are crazed. There is a gap about the edge of the deck hatch above the starboard aft cabin. The structural reinforcements in this area including the liner and bulkheads were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The structural reinforcements including the liner and bulkheads were visually inspected and randomly sounded. Most of the structural reinforcements appear to be in “as-built” condition. There are several groups of spider cracks in the liner forward of the port engine. There is cracking to port forward below the starboard engine. There are cracks in the bottom of the locker below the port aft interior bridge deck sole. There are lateral tabbing cracks in the aft bilge access space in the port aft cabin. The bilge is holding minimal water, salt crystals, fluid and stains. There are stains forward of both engines. There is red fluid forward of the starboard engine. The outboard cleat for the port engine hatch is broken at the lift mount connection point. There are stains and fluid in the starboard aft bilge space. There is fluid in the bilge aft of amidships in the starboard hull. There is salt build up and stains in the port aft bilge. The interior cabin spaces are neat, clean and orderly. The interior of the vessel is in satisfactory – good cosmetic condition. An access panel inboard aft in the starboard hull is not secure, the latches are broken and the edge of the hatch is damaged. The sliding hatch into the starboard hull won’t lock. The vessel apparently has a Mexican temporary importation permit. The gasket for the starboard engine hatch is loose. This survey is not a mould inspection. The condition of the coring, in the hull, deck, and elsewhere as applicable, is beyond the scope of this inspection.|

|Comments: The electrical system including the shore power cords, 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 survey, some had date stamps. The upper refrigerator drawer in the galley was seized shut and was not opened; this unit was not tested for function (neither drawer). There is a loose terminal connection at the aft battery in the port engine room. The vhf radios did not function properly, there was no response when tested on channel 27 or 16 and there was no MMSI number in the lower vhf. There was also no position data in the vhf; however the GPS may have been off at the time it was tested. Four of the flybridge hard top lights did not illuminate. The technician aboard the vessel stated that he had to defrost several of the refrigerators. There is a small dome on the center aft of the hard top, its function is unknown. We could not make the cameras display on the multifunction device and they exhibit surface corrosion. The light overhead in the starboard cabin did not illuminate. Upon returning to the slip after the sea trial there was an alarm sounding on the flybridge, it seemed to be associated with a freezer, per a circuit breaker and a switch. The lower autopilot controller is not secure and the wireless remote would not power up. The port aft cabin fan did not function.|

The vessel is a composite fiberglass power catamaran built in Cape Town, South Africa. The listing broker reports that the current owners purchased the vessel 4 – 5 years ago in Florida and they are they second owner. He reports that the machine systems are original. He reported that the hull bottoms and sides were painted one year ago at Marine Group Boatworks, Chula Vista, CA. The hull sides were reportedly previously wrapped and the wrap had failed. The broker disclosed no knowledge of any significant events in the vessels history such as collisions, fires, submersions, etc. The broker disclosed no knowledge of any problems with the vessel. Eventually, through the survey, several problems were disclosed including an allision involving a jet ski with the swim platform, a problem with the generator and the necessity to defrost several refrigeration units. The vessel was inspected while afloat, underway and while hauled. The vessel is basically structurally sound. The vessel exhibits very little usage type damage, however there are more than the normal number of deficiencies, particularly in the hull and structure. Upon completion of the recommendations the vessel should be suitable for its intended purpose as a near coastal cruising vessel.
Overall Summary: Satisfactory
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.
|ACTUAL CASH VALUE||NEW REPLACEMENT VALUE||INVESTMENT|
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 soldboat.com reported sale prices and the yachtworld.com listing prices below. While it is unknown if this vessel was a charter boat, the sales history suggests it was not. The condition of the hull however is not better than if it had been in charter, except for the hull side paint job. The value of charter vessels is less than private vessels, based on condition. This vessel is in the higher tier of value, but its condition reduces its value.
