A Marine haul-out is required in order to perform a detailed wet surface inspection where the underwater gear and hull integrity are checked. This process can take anywhere from a few hours, for smaller vessels, to several days for larger boats and yachts, depending on the availability of haul out and other desired services. In cases where a haul-out or dry docking is not an option, a dive inspection of the wet surface areas can be performed.
Let’s break down exactly what’s involved:
- Remove your boat from the water
- Pressure wash the hull
- Inspect the zincs, propeller, shafts, rudders, struts and cutlass bearings (we can change if necessary for additional charge)
- Top off the fuel tanks with marine diesel at market rates
A sea trial is also required to determine the performance, handling, seakeeping, and reliability of the vessel. The vessel will be put through a systematic set of trials in which careful observation of the machinery and systems will be performed in order to provide you with a professional opinion of the vessel in action.
*All examinations are performed in a non-destructive manner. An official marine survey report based on the Standards set forth by The Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors, American Boat, and Yacht Council, National Fire Protection Association, and US Coast Guard requirements will be provided detailing Market value, Recommendations, Replacement costs, Comments on overall conditions of the vessel.
