Pre-Purchase is a more comprehensive inspection completed when purchasing a new or used vessel.

It is a total inspection of the vessel to ascertain its condition and overall operational capability.

 

The survey evaluates any condition which could lead to sinking the vessel, causing a fire, or endangering the crew. This assessment is performed to enable the insurance Underwriter to evaluate the vessel's insurability and risk assessment.

IME offers pre-purchase inspections, sea trials, damage assessment, and condition and valuations surveys for yachts.

Findings and Recommendations.

We make appraisals to establish a vessel's fair market value and to report that value to a lending institution. An accurate appraisal is arrived at after a detailed inspection of the vessel's systems and overall seaworthiness. An appraisal is also sought in establishing the value of older boats, engines, and other marine property designated for tax-filing purposes.
