Marine Surveyor Victoria BC

If you are purchasing, insuring, refitting or operating a powerboat, having a marine surveyor inspect and report on the vessel has many benefits including ensuring your safety afloat. A powerboat is a big investment, and you need to protect that investment by having a professional marine survey inspection. A surveyor typically has more experience and knowledge than a general service or a specific repair centre offers. A boat assessment focuses on the entire boat, its structural integrity, propulsion and on all on board systems. The survey and inspection gives you a comprehensive report for your safety afloat and a summary of the operational conditions and limitations of your vessel.

My 42 years’ experience in the marine field includes molded ship building, refitting, re-powering, consulting and surveying vessels from 16’ to 65’. I have sold and delivered over 1,200 powerboats, acting as seller or purchasing agent. I have logged over 108,000 nautical miles on these multiple hulls on the Pacific Coast, inland waters, and lakes throughout Canada and the USA.

My experience enables me to offer you a complete perspective of your vessel. I ensure that you get a full survey report that protects your insurable investment.

To get started with your marine survey, please fill out my authorization form. Once completed, I will be in contact with you directly. I am also available to discuss or provide advice on our contact us page or by phone at 250-893-2839.
