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 the 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 engines, 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 electrical 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 the geographic area where the vessel is located, and reported sales

prices where available.  The surveyor will refer to and may reference CFRs, NFPA and

ABYC recommendations (and/or other sources) as the surveyor deems reasonable but

not all of these regulations and recommendations will be applied nor should this report

be relied upon as full compliance with them.  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,

reviewed and signed by the client details the terms governing this marine survey.

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 average historical sale price of like vessels on Soldboats.com is $10,200, however this value also includes newer vessels, and the average current listing price of similar vessels is $8,609.  We feel that the value of this vessel is closer to the average listing price of similar vessels and have valued it as such.

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 federally required, approved and current distress signal flares or a suitable and approved alternative distress signal.
