The vessel is a custom, one of a kind, power catamaran. The client built the vessel. The vessel is equipped with two diesel engines. The client stated his intention to replace the engines in the near future. The vessel was inspected while afloat, the engines were not test operated, no sea trial was performed and the vessel was not hauled for survey. The vessel appears basically structurally sound. The vessel is in marginal cosmetic condition externally, with wear, scratches and paint failure on the hull sides and deck. The vessel is not completely cosmetically finished; there are exposed fiberglass areas in lockers and storage areas. The vessel is very well laid out practically and is suitable for its intended purpose as a long range power vessel.

Overall Summary: Satisfactory

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.

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. Display the HIN per federal regulations.
2. Remove corrosion from steering components, inspect, service if / as necessary.
3. Secure the bait pump and the strainer in the port aft bilge.
4. Free up and prove all through hull valves properly functional, several were tested and were found to be seized, including two in the port hull aft, both engines’ and the port generator’s through hull valve was difficult to reach.
5. Provide and install face plates on switches and AC outlets in both engine rooms which currently have no faceplates.
6. There is rust staining about both propeller shaft seals, more significantly to port. Address any leaks, determine the source of the rust (potentially propeller shafts) and address appropriately.
7. Secure the battery by the port generator; cover the battery to prevent accidental short circuiting. Remove the unused battery in the port engine room. Comply with ABYC recommendations.
8. The port Racor fuel filter bowls are dark and there is alga in the starboard Racor bowls. Clean the fuel filter bowls and fuel as necessary.
9. Maintain the fixed and portable fire extinguishers per NPFA recommendations and assure that the fixed extinguishers are properly installed. The fixed extinguishers’ wires are not connected. Extinguishers should be inspected and tagged annually and inspected by a qualified technician or replaced every six years.
10. Provide and install a locking ring on the shore power cord.
11. Remove the “sludge” from the starboard aft cabin bilge.
12. Properly secure the batteries below the exterior bridge deck sole.
13. Display the documentation number per federal regulations.


1. Address the cosmetic deficiencies externally as desired. Cosmetic deficiencies include scrapes and dings by the anchors, scratches in the hull sides, “patches”, paint failure, varnish failure and similar conditions.
2. A sea water hose junction in the port aft bilge is taped over, remove the tape, access, inspect and address any deficiencies.

3. The port shore power inlet has been removed; wires are protruding from the hole for the fixture. Reinstall the fixture or assure there is no liability associated with the wires exposed.
4. There is only line in the port anchor rode locker. A hydraulic drum in this locker is not currently in use, modify if / as desired or necessary.
5. We did not test any bilge pumps and did not see a bilge pump in the port aft cabin bilge. Test and prove all bilge pumps properly functional. Assure that the vessel is equipped with a high water alarm.
6. There are dead ended wires in the starboard engine room forward for the fuel flow and fuel transfer pumps. Assure that these devices are properly installed and functional or that there is no liability associated with these systems.
7. There is a broken y valve in the starboard aft cabin bilge, replace as desired or as necessary.
8. Provide federally required, approved and current distress signal flares.
