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.

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 listing prices below and our in-house data base.  The COI is expired and the value reflects that, the value will increase when the COI is obtained and this value assumes that the COI is attainable with minor to moderate improvements and financial investment.  The vessel below “Chrysalis” is a 2005 Skipperliner of comparable size and passenger capacity, with a current COI and it is asking $1,500,000.  Though Skipperliner made many passenger vessels, the available sales data is scarce.

1995 Skipperliner 134 Passenger Yacht

The Spirit of Lake Murray was purchased in the summer of 2008 by Ken & Laura Colton from a high-end hotel in Jacksonville, FL.  The Coltons transported the vessel up the ICW to the Copper River in Charleston, SC where the vessel was removed from the water and transported on the road to Lake Murray, SC.  The Coltons modernized the vessel and made improvements that enhanced the atmosphere and service onboard the yacht.  The Spirit of Lake Murray Dinner Cruise Yacht opened for business in 2009 and served clients for a decade.  The Spirit of Lake Murray was a Coast Guard inspected vessel used for private and public events.  Once a year the Coast Guard would visit Lake Murray and hold an annual inspection of the vessel.  In 2014, the Spirit was removed from the water and went through a Dry Dock inspection where ~50% of the hull was replaced with new steel.  The vessel was put back in the water and operated until 2019 hosting ~200 events per year.  In 2018, the Spirit had ~11,000 passengers onboard.  In 2019, the yacht did not pass the rigorous inspection by the United States Coast Guard.  At that time, the vessel stopped hosting large chartered events for hire.

Since 2019, the Spirit has continued to be used as a personal recreational yacht by the owners.  The vessel is fully operational for personal and recreational use.  The vessel is also currently approved for small group charters(6) for hire, under an uninspected program.  The yacht is currently used for family functions and entertaining friends and clients.  The yacht does not currently carry a COI(certificate of inspection by the USCG), so she is not currently able to be used for hire to carry large groups.

This survey is for the express purpose of insurance.  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. Assure the vessel has all legally required carriage items, the captain reports that current distress signal flares have been ordered (and have not yet arrived) and a new Certificate of Documentation has been ordered.
  2. Maintain the EPIRB appropriately, the battery is current but the registration is expired.
  3. The HIN was not seen on the transom, assure the HIN is displayed per federal regulations.
  4. Service and prove all engine room lights properly functional, several were out and the engine room was dim.  We encourage installation of both AC and DC lights.
  5. Replace all wing nuts used at battery terminals with steel nuts and lock washers.  Comply with ABYC recommendations.  Assure the batteries are properly secure, most of the batteries are smaller than their boxes with no additional means to secure them in the boxes.
  6. The starboard engine has a section of deformed flexible exhaust hose, replace this hose, assure that the replacement hose is of a suitable type and there is no existing cause for this deformation.
  7. One of the three fixed CO2 bottles for the engine room’s automatic fire suppression system does not have a regulator, and is not connected to the other two as they are connected to each other, consult with a qualified technician to determine the significance and address if necessary.
  8. The radar did not power up, service and prove the radar properly functional.
  9. The captain reports that new lights for the life floats have been ordered and are pending arrival, assure that the lights are properly functional and attach the lights to the floats.
  10. There was no power to the outlets in the galley including a GFCI outlet.  The outlet would trip and reset with its own buttons, but had not power, service or replace the outlets and prove them properly functional.
  11. There is an extension cord by an outlet to port on the aft deck, the outlet does not have power and the extension cord is apparently run to this location as a power source.  Remove the extension cord and if power is desired at this outlet provide power per industry standards and comply with ABYC recommendations.



  1. The vessel was inspected with the port side to the dock, the starboard side and transom were not inspected.  There are corrosion and paint issues on the port side, more significantly amidship at the bottom of the upper deck enclosure panel.  Address the corrosion and paint as necessary.
  2. Work was underway to the port engine’s heat exchanger, a fuel filter had to be removed (to remove the heat exchanger) and a diesel odor was noted in the bilge.  Complete the repair, test and prove the engine properly functional, eliminate the diesel odor.
  3. We did not inspect the shore power inlet or the cord as it is on the starboard side and the port side was towards the dock.  Inspect the shore power inlet and cord and address any damage.  Typically shore power cords and inlets exhibit heat or corrosion damage.
  4. The HVAC’s sea strainer is blooming, there are stains around the sea strainer and the captain reports the seawater pump leaks water.  Service and prove the seawater pump properly functional, eliminate the leak.  Service the sea strainer, clean the strainer and around the strainer to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.  We did not test the HVAC system.
  5. The garbage disposal is seized, service as desired.
  6. The generator’s water flow indicator light is inoperative, service and prove it properly functional.  We did not test the audible function of the highwater alarm due to work going with the engines and the engines’ water flow alarms sounding continuously when not muted.
  7. There are many screws protruding through the main deck to the bilge spaces, we recommend removing these sharp points which present a minor personal injury risk, the risk is small but the personal injury may not be.
  8. The vessel is equipped with a Yanmar engine and a sail drive as a bow thruster.  The captain stated that the system was abandoned several years ago, the exhaust hose is disconnected, the fuel supply line is disconnected and the battery has been removed.  We encourage installation of a wooden plug or a welded cap for the exhaust discharge fitting if the bow thruster is not to be returned to service.  Returning the bow thruster to service would add a significant amount of control to the vessel.
  9. There was water and corrosion by the starboard propeller shaft seal and fluid in the engine room.  The captain stated that the engine room bilge is normally dry but ongoing work has caused this condition.  The corrosion by the starboard propeller shaft seal has likely accumulated over time.  Remove the water and staining from the engine room bilge, inspect and service as necessary, eliminate any source of water or fluid, clean and paint the bilge to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.  There is moisture and staining below the port engine as well.
  10. We did not engage transmissions, load the generator, energize the Rulemate bilge pumps, take a sea trial, haul the vessel, test the HVAC system, intercom, PA or galley equipment.


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.

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”.
