Insurance Survey

This type of survey is performed so the insurance company can determine whether or not the vessel is an acceptable risk. They are interested in the structural integrity and safety for it's intended use. Most insurance companies will require a survey be performed on older boats. They also will need the fair market value.

Appraisal Inspection

This service is performed to determine fair market value of the vessel. It is normally needed for financing, estate settlements, donations and legal cases.
