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.

N / A

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 sales prices and Yachtworld.com current listing prices below.  The surveyed vessel is in above average condition, is actively and well maintained and has many upgrades to its systems, including: a Seakeeper model 16 gyroscopic stabilizer, navigational electronics, complete rewire in 2006, an MSAT system and other electronic devices, the generators were replaced in 2006, the engines were replaced in 2001/2, the aft deck has been replaced, the bow pulpit was replaced, a bow thruster was installed and the interior has been upgraded.  The majority of the upgrades were performed between 2016 and 2018.  The 1974 Elliot Long Range Sportfisher that sold for $850,000 in 2018 is very similar but is equipped with newer and higher h.p. engines than the surveyed vessel (1001 h.p.), however, it sold prior to the demand and value spike attributed to Covid-19.  The 1982 Monk Aguilar 75 Long Range SF that sold for $635,000 in July 2021 in San Diego, CA is similarly equipped with electronics but does not have a gyroscopic stabilizer and its engines, while higher rated h.p. (658 h.p.) are 1982 Detroit Diesels.  The 1985 Westport Yachtfisher that sold for $570,000 in July 2018 is equipped with similar model Caterpillar engines, has hydraulic stabilizers, but sold prior to the demand and value spike attributed to Covid-19.  There is limited data for similarly sized and equipped vessels on Yachtworld.com, so we expanded our search; this search includes newer and/or smaller vessels.

This survey is for the express purpose of insurance, entering a marina and/or financing.  It is not meant as a buyer’s survey.




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. Maintain the flybridge EPIRB per manufacturer’s recommendations.
  2. Maintain the life raft per the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  3. There are wing nuts on the terminal posts at the port batteries in the engine room.  Replace with steel nuts and lock washers per ABYC recommendations.
  4. The carbon monoxide and smoke alarms have been removed during the service and replacement of wallpaper.  Reinstall the alarms upon completion, we also recommend keeping some on board during the service to eliminate liabilities.


  1. Several of the blue Aeroquip-type hoses for both engines are cracked.  Some of these hoses are fuel hoses, the industry accepted standard “rule of thumb” for the life expectancy of fuel hoses is ten years.  Either replace these hoses or assure they are suitable for continued use and replace them as necessary.
  2. Determine the significance of the cracks in the main engines’ internal sea strainers and address appropriately.
  3. Determine the cause of the rust and salt crystals at the transducer located forward of the starboard engine, eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and clean the area to allow detection of future weeps, leaks and rust / salt accumulation.
  4. The port generator’s exhaust hose from its muffler to the exhaust gas water separator is cracked.  Either replace the hose or monitor and replace as necessary.
  5. The tabbing for the support for the holding tank is loose and the support moves.  Address appropriately.




This survey sets forth the condition of the vessel and components, as specifically stated only, at the time of inspection and represents the surveyor’s honest and unbiased opinion.  No part of the vessel was disassembled or removed and no assumptions should be made as to the condition of concealed components.  Specifics were obtained from sources available at the time of inspection and are believed correct, but are not guaranteed to be accurate.


I/we certify that, to the best of my/our knowledge and belief:


The statements of fact contained in this report are true and correct. The reported analyses, opinions, and conclusions are limited only by the reported assumptions and limiting conditions, and are my/our personal, unbiased professional analyses, opinions, and conclusions. I/we have no present or prospective interest in the vessel that is the subject of this report, and I/we have no personal interest or bias with respect to the parties involved.  My/our compensation is not contingent upon the reporting of a predetermined value or direction in value that favors the cause of the client, the amount of the value estimate, the attainment of a stipulated result, or the occurrence of a subsequent event.  I/we have made a personal inspection of the vessel that is the subject of this report.  This report should be considered as an entire document.  No single section is meant to be used except as part of the whole.  This report is submitted without prejudice and for the benefit of whom it may concern.  This report does not constitute a warranty, either expressed, or implied, nor does it warrant the future condition of the vessel. It is a statement of the condition of the vessel at the time of survey only.  The submitting of this report creates no liability on the part of Christian & Company or the individual surveyor.  This survey report is not intended for use as a “buyer’s survey”.
