Marine Survey

Marine surveying is the practice of inspecting marine equipment, primarily boats and cargo, to determine safety and market value. A marine surveyor may be called in to assess a damaged vessel for insurance purposes, appraise a vessel that is being sold, or even serve as an expert witness in court.

There are many types of marine surveying. Three common categories are:

  • Surveyors of small watercraft
  • Machinery and hull surveyors
  • Cargo surveyors

Specialists who inspect and monitor various ships using advanced inspection methods are known as “Marine Surveyors”. Considered to be one of the most prestigious vocations in the industry, it demands a great deal of technical know-how. A marine surveyor should know how to inspect a vessel’s hull, marine engines, electrical system, and other electronics, check for water intrusion, proper functioning of the heat and air-conditioning etc.
