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.


In most instances the data found while researching the value is stored in our file for this survey.  We primarily use market value analysis methodology for determination of value.
