Boat Insurance Marine Survey
Sometimes boat owners will find out they need a survey after they have bought or acquired their boat. The survey may be needed for insurance purposes, or for example for on-water storage it is usually required for commercial moorings or berths.
Insurance surveys are very specific types of surveys that give the insurer a guide to the overall condition of the boat before they will agree to provide insurance. The insurer may specify that repairs are required immediately prior to taking out the policy, while other less important items can be completed within a specified timeframe. Avast Marine Surveyors can guide you through this process.
A pre-purchase survey, subject to a positive report can also be used to obtain insurance once you have purchased the vessel.
It is at times an insurance requirement that a boat owner periodically provides a condition report. Where this is needed, it’s your opportunity to get the specialist opinion of Avast Marine Surveyors about the overall condition of your boat, and any areas that may need attention now or in the future.
If your insurance company has asked for an out of water survey, we can come out to your local slipway or hardstand or other address in Sydney Harbour, Pittwater, Botany Bay, Port Hacking or anywhere in Queensland, NSW, and Victorian coastal and inland waterways. We will check your boat and provide a report for your insurance company.
