The Cost of a Marine Survey

There are many variables to a marine survey that can affect a fair price, including but not limited to the size and type of vessel, the materials it is built from, its age, the type and scope of work the surveyor is required to complete as well as and the location of the vessel.

The vessel condition can also play a big part... it takes much longer to survey and write the report for a 15 year old boat that has been badly neglected than it does for a three year old vessel in Bristol condition. Some surveys may require an hourly rate rather than a flat fee or price per foot.

We should add here that in almost every case the marine survey is very much the wrong place to try to save a couple of hundred bucks. A boat is a very serious investment as both money and lives are at stake.

The open water can be a treacherous place, subject to the whims of weather and lady luck. Get the best man for the job and pay him what he is worth.
