Scope of Services
The vessel was examined by the 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 vessel is an aluminum passenger sportfishing vessel equipped with three diesel engines and two diesel generators. The vessel was built by Bill Poole in 1975 in Chula Vista, CA. The current owner reported that the engines, generators, and transmissions are 4.5 years old. He reported that the vessel has been hauled for maintenance including: servicing the propeller shafts, propellers, replacing the teak cap rails, paint work and miscellaneous other maintenance. The Certificate of Inspection (COI) expires May 26, 2021 and the US Coast Guard was aboard prior to the survey to renew the certificate. The vessel has a COI for forty-one passengers, forty-seven persons total and in extended ocean zone 4. He reported that an ultrasound test was performed on the hull bottom for thickness last year. The vessel was inspected while hauled. The engines and generators were not test operated and no sea trial was performed. The vessel is basically structurally sound and upon completion of the recommendations should be suitable for its intended purpose as a passenger fishing 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
|Removed for privacy
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 vessel is an aluminum passenger fishing vessel with three engines. Comparable listings and sales are difficult to find as these types of vessels are usually privately traded. Value is primarily based on our data base and research. These type of vessels are often sold as a business and thus the value of the vessel is difficult to separate from the business value. We contacted several sportfishing companies in Southern California to ascertain value of similar vessels, this research support the value but provided no analytical support.
Tim Green, a fellow marine surveyor, reported that the Polaris Supreme recently sold for $1,500,000. The vessel is smaller in size than the Royal Polaris but is a Poole / Chafee make.
We surveyed Intrepid, a 112 ’ steel passenger fishing vessel in 2020 and placed a value of $2,700,000 on the vessel. Intrepid is a 2007 vintage vessel, thus holds a different value than an aluminum, fiberglass or fiberglass over plywood vessel. Intrepid has a COI for twenty-six passengers / thirty four persons in zone four and forty persons limited coastwise.
We surveyed American Angler, a 90 ’ Poole aluminum passenger fishing vessel in June of 2018 and placed a value of $1,800,000. The vessel is shorter and has one less engine. At the time of inspection, American Angler had a COI for thirty-five passengers in extended zone 4 / extended ocean that is set to expire 08 May 2022.

|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.
- The extinguishers were inspected April 2020 and are due for inspection. Maintain the fire extinguishers per NFPA recommendations. The extinguishers should be inspected and tagged annually and inspected by a qualified technician or replaced every six years.
- Properly cover the exposed bulb port aft in the engine room.
- The life rafts have been removed from the vessel for service. Upon completion of the maintenance, reinstall them on the vessel.
- The man overboard strobe connected to the port life ring has liquid inside and it did not illuminate when tested. Service or replace the MOB strobe and prove it properly functional.
- The tie bar is disconnected from the starboard rudder assembly. Reconnect it upon completion of maintenance and prove the steering system properly functional.
- The cap rails have been removed and are being replaced. Complete the maintenance.
- The documents with the registration of the EPIRBs show that the registrations for the EPIRBs expired in 2018. The registrations on the EPIRBs themselves are current and expire in 2022, 2022, and 2024. Assure that the registration documents are proper.
- Reinstall the propellers upon completion of the maintenance.
- Replace the missing outlet covers aft in the salon.
