COVERED ON THIS PAGE ..
Every survey undertaken by Marine Survey New Zealand is subject to the particular requirements of you, the client.
Whether you are after a pre-purchase survey, insurance survey, damage survey or a valuation survey at Marine Survey New Zealand it is our role to give you peace of mind. We will provide you with a factual assessment and report on the vessel of your dreams.
Some surveyors reports can read as if a vessel were a complete disaster area just waiting to sink. In reality, the vessel could be in good overall condition, but with a large amount of minor maintenance areas requiring attention. Whilst our reports will include all the defects found in the survey, we will put these into context in terms of their significance.
Marine Survey New Zealand will give you peace of mind.
A pre-purchase survey is typically commissioned by the potential buyer of a vessel once a decision has been made to proceed with the purchase and a deposit has been made.
An insurance company will also request this type of survey before the vessel is insured. The buyers interest will be to know in detail, whether there are any issues with the vessel. As a buyer you need confidence in the vessel, that there are no hidden defects which may result in future costs.
A pre-purchase survey is a comprehensive, non-invasive inspection of the vessel on and off the water. It covers the structural integrity of the hull, decks, internal structural members and the overall condition of the systems, fixtures and fittings. A full rig and sail check can be made for yachts should the client choose.
It is our role as you surveyor to find out whether there are any issues with the vessel, producing a balanced report putting any defects into context the terms of their significance and implications.
Our survey reports will give recommendations on defects found during the survey.
Our goal at Marine Survey New Zealand is to give factual reports on the condition, or particular aspects of the condition, of your vessel.
We work for you, the client.
An insurance company may request a survey from an owner prior to accepting a particular vessel for insurance purposes. Commonly, such a request is made for older, or unique types of vessels.
As a rule of thumb, an underwriter is interested in knowing about any physical aspect about the vessel that could cause it to suffer a loss, together with a realistic appraisal, taking condition into account. For these surveys the insurers and our surveyors are not particularly interested if the vessel has osmosis, other than if it has an impact on value. Our concern will be more on parts of the vessel that show an owner is making efforts to maintain the vessels integrity, such as skin fittings, gas systems and safety equipment.
Marine Survey New Zealand request that the vessel is out of the water for the purpose of an Insurance survey.
Incidents like sinking, grounding, flooding, collisions and fire can all be assessed by Marine Survey New Zealand.
We will generate a full independent report, giving the complete extent of the damage sustained.
Included in the report may be cause and effect of the incident, valuation of salvageable items, assessment of damaged areas and repairs required to get the vessel back to its pre accident state.
Marine Survey New Zealand are able to project manage or over see any re-fit, or repair work necessary.
Clients frequently ask Marine Survey New Zealand to carry out a valuation report as part of a survey, or a standalone document. Surveys of this types are generally commissioned for pre-purchase, insurance, finance (when the client needs to satisfy a third party such as a bank), for the clients own piece of mind, or for legal reasons (divorce).
Here at Marine Survey New Zealand, we will produce a formal, independent opinion based on thorough and factual research, giving the client an accurate valuation of the vessels market value at a given time.
