What is a boat survey and do I need one?

October 28, 2020

Boat surveys provide details on the condition and valuation of a boat. A survey may uncover hidden defects, mechanical and structural problems that are not always visible or detectable by the boat owner/operator. Before purchasing an older boat, you should always get a boat survey. We do not actually require a survey for a brand new vessel, although it would be very useful. We require a survey for other vessels.
