Pre Purchase Inspections

Pre-Purchase Inspection gives you the peace of mind knowing that what you are buying is what you expect...

A Pre Purchase inspection will basically give you an insight into the general condition of a vessel. Most contracts of sale are drawn up subject to satifcatory survey and sea-trails. Just as you do when you buy a property or dwelling, your final commitment to purchasing a vessel can be contracted subject to these conditions, and enables you to re-evaluate your original offer in an informed position. It is not necessarily the case that re-negotiation will be intered into; this is entirely at the discretion of the vendor.



A structured survey undertaken by YMS follows the industry standard Maring Surveyors Association Vessel Inspection Reporting for 1 A. This in simple is a 143 point checklist clearly indication any faults that were noted, their relevance, and accessibility, not unlike a RAC checklist performed for the roadworthiness of a vehicle.
