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 (if applicable) 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 Litigation Support Agreement, which is reviewed and signed by the clients, details the terms governing this appraisal. By agreement with both clients it is assumed that all systems and components are normally and properly functional.

|The vessel is a production composite fiberglass catamaran equipped with two diesel engines and a diesel generator. The vessel was built in San Fernando, Argentina and the client purchased it brand new in San Fernando, Argentina, reportedly taking delivery in 2016. The client reported that the engines were replaced under warranty by Admiralty Marine in 2019. The bottom paint is reportedly two years old. No systems were tested and the survey was conducted under the assumption that all components, including electronics and machine systems, are properly functional. The vessel was inspected while afloat. The vessel is basically structurally sound and suitable for its intended purpose as an offshore cruising vessel.|

ACTUAL CASH VALUE
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 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 listing prices below. Several of the listings have been in charter, lowering values. The Antares is valued higher than many of the “production” vessels. The average sale price of similar vessels on Soldboats.com is $753,333 and the average current listing price of a wider variety of vessels on Yachtworld.com is $560,576. The 2018 vessel that sold In February 2020 and March 2021 is the same vessel. There was limited listing data for Antares catamarans so our search was expanded to include other manufacturers. The Antares catamarans that are currently listed are newer vessels with higher value. The surveyed vessel is in above average condition for its age and its engines were replaced in 2019. The surveyed vessel is also equipped with a 2021 tender. The data from Soldboats.com and Yachtworld.com have factored in the demand and value spike attributed to Covid-19.
