The vessel is a steel exploration yacht manufactured in the United States. Its prior name was “removed for privacy”. The captain reports the vessel was purchased approximately one year ago in Seattle, WA.  Since then the vessel has undergone a refit at The Marine Group Boat Yard in Chula Vista, CA.  The refit has included a complete paint job from top to bottom, which also necessitated numerous weld repairs.  Many components in the engine room have been replaced including both generators and the hydraulic system, which includes PTOs on each generator.  The hydraulic system serves the bow and stern thrusters, davit and windlass.  The stern thruster has been added during this refit.  The davit has been reconfigured to work off the ship’s hydraulic system.  Mr. Removed for privacy installed a complete new electronics package, a new entertainment system throughout the vessel, rewired the DC primary system in the engine room and relocated AC components as needed.  A new 75 KW AC shore system has been installed including the addition of two new shore cable caddies.  All the tanks were cleaned and serviced.  A new exhaust system was installed for the main engine.  New plumbing was installed for the HVAC chiller system and one new unit was added.  Work on the refit/restoration is continuing.  The interior sole and exterior deck cosmetics are pending.  Installation of consoles on the upper deck and lower aft deck are underway.  Installation of custom exterior rails is underway.  The master stateroom head has been refinished.  The vessel was inspected while afloat.  The vessel has reportedly been out of the water for most of the refit project.  The vessel has not been taken on a sea trial and many of the systems have not yet been tested.  The restoration / refit project is likely two months from completion.

Overall Summary: Good-Excellent



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. The actual cash value is best determined by a thorough market search to determine what vessels are available on the market, followed by negotiations between the interested parties. 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.

C & V Form Key: All systems are rated based upon their appearance, ratings include: Not examined, Not applicable, Faulty, Marginal, Satisfactory, Good, Excellent.

This survey is for the express purpose of insurance and 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. Complete the restoration / refit. Projects that are underway or pending include: unfinished exterior decks, unfinished interior sole, pending installation of console on the upper deck, pending installation of console on the aft lower deck, completion of the safety rail installation, completion of all electronics / electrical work, foredeck / ground tackle hardware, installation of overhead panels, wiring below pilothouse console, installation of faceplate in the electrical distribution panel in pilothouse, underwater light installation, stabilizer and hydraulic system service and successful sea trial.
  2. There is an escape hatch to starboard aft in the engine space, it is obstructed. The lazarette hatch is located relatively close and should be the primary escape hatch used by the crew.
  3. There are no visible fasteners at the base of the ladder to the pilothouse hardtop / flybridge. Assure this ladder is properly secure.
  4. Test and prove the vessel information system including smoke alarms, high water alarm etc…
  5. Maintain the fixed and portable fire extinguishers per N.F.P.A. and manufacturers’ recommendations.
  6. Two bags for immersion suits were seen with no immersion suits installed, assure immersion suits are available if intended and logical for the intended area of use.
  7. Provide suitable permanent steps for access to the lazarette through the aft deck hatch as a ladder is currently in use.
  8. Clean the forward fuel filter bowl which exhibits debris, the fuel tanks have reportedly been cleaned.
  9. Service to eliminate any leak at or near the hydraulic system “filter” to starboard forward in the engine room. Clean fluid to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  10. Service as a result of fluid on and below the transmission.       Eliminate any leaks, clean fluid to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  11. There is fluid on and below the front of the engine. Service to eliminate any leaks. Clean fluid to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  12. There is minimal fluid including fuel in the engine room bilge.       There was a reported spill and most of the fuel has been cleaned. Clean the remaining fuel to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  13. We found the float switch for the forward engine room DC bilge pump stuck in the up position, it was returned to its proper position.       Assure both electric / automatic bilge pumps located forward in the engine room are properly functional.       We did not determine the number of bilge pumps or test their function. Assure the vessel has at least four functional electric / automatic bilge pumps and a functional high water alarm system.


  1. The upper step to the flybridge / pilothouse hardtop is cracked, replace or monitor and replace as necessary.
  2. The MOB strobe light aft of the pilothouse did not flash and is not connected to the life ring.
  3. An HVAC duct located within the aft dinette seat back is un-terminated.       Complete its installation.
  4. Many of the generators’ exhaust hoses’ connections are single clamped and have room for a second clamp. Provide and install a second clamp where it is beneficial.
  5. The hours on the generator meters are 22 and 6, the generators are new.       The generators were not tested during our inspection.
  6. The vessel uses bronze through hull valve components connected to steel through hulls, monitor these connections and address if / as necessary over time. The steel will likely corrode in advance of the bronze if they are electrically bonded.
  7. The vessel has foam insulation throughout the bilge; it has been removed around the starboard fin stabilizer. The suitability and characteristics of the insulation and the reason why it has been removed around the starboard fin stabilizer is beyond the scope of this survey.
  8. The HIN does not follow proper format, the significance of this condition is likely only during transfer of ownership, address as necessary.       It is unclear who the actual manufacturer of the vessel is; the manufacturer’s identification code (NPM       – Northwest Pacific Marine) is not a current manufacturer per the U.S.C.G. database.
  9. It is unclear where the IMO number included on the U.S. Documentation originates (9199361).
  10. The swim platform was down. It was not raised and secured in the up position during our inspection.
  11. Several of the interior locker doors are loose on their hinges, the restoration project has two or three months left for completion and these items will be addressed.
  12. This survey did not include an out of water inspection, ultra sound testing or plate thickness, test operation of most of the vessel systems or sea trial.
