Compass Marine Yacht Surveys
Compass Marine   Yacht Surveys

Scrupulous vessel inspections and high quality,

practical reports

Scope and Fees


I understand that you want to use your boat and you don't want to spend money on needless repairs. Equally, I understand that your boat is a major investment and the responsibilities of owners are considerable.


Although there is no guarantee that I will find every defect (because of restricted access it is sometimes not possible to inspect all parts of the boat), I will go the extra

mile in care and attention and in use of tests and equipment.


The points covered in reports can be found here.


However you get to hear about me, you can rest assured of my integrity. I work to the codes of practice of the YDSA, IIMS, RINA and BMSE.



I aim to provide clients with excellent value for money including competitive fees meticulous inspections and high quality reports as a happy client gives me the greatest reward: job satisfaction.


Some surveyors spend minimal time on the job. I provide better value for money and aim to be the most thorough and careful. My surveys usually save the client more than the fee.


Check with me for a competitive price for your survey. A minimum charge applies to smaller vessels and a number of factors can mean higher fees including size and hull material, but whatever the fee, I can assure you of excellent value.


All surveys include a written report unless you only need a partial survey with an appropriately lower fee. I can discuss your needs and tailor the work accordingly.


There is no VAT and no charge for travel costs between Essex and Southampton.


Please have a look at a sample report.
