A Thorough Marine Survey Is The BEST Protection For Your Investment

Marine Surveyor Palm City

(772) 321-2428 

Thank you for your interest in Sand Dollar Marine Surveyor Palm City services. Marine surveying of recreational boats is an unregulated practice. There is no licensing or educational or training prerequisite, federal, state or regional, that dictates marine surveyor qualifications and we counsel all our prospective clients to consider only three words when choosing the surveyor for the boat they intend to purchase. Those words are reputation, reputation, reputation. A surveyor may be popular (by reputation) among brokers who are quite properly interested in surveys that easily “pass” the boats they are representing. That’s their proper agenda. Your agenda should be to select the surveyor who can best discern the information you need to make an informed decision about the boat you’ve chosen to purchase. There are good, better and bests among surveyors and, as in most of our purchases for goods and services, we usually get what we pay for so keep solely to your agenda for this critical service.

Marine Surveyor Palm City

The purpose of a pre-purchase survey is to provide information about the condition and value of a boat, its machinery and equipment, sufficient for our clients to make an informed purchase decision. Insurance underwriters and lenders also rely upon our reports in making their commitments. Our surveys include a written report of the surveyor’s observations, recommendations and an opinion of current market value and replacement cost.


Prior to the survey, a prospective purchaser should request full disclosure from all parties to the sale, to include, but not be limited to, the boat’s title status, service history, damage experience, records of maintenance and repairs, engine logs, owner’s manuals, etc. A disclosure form sample is included with this information packet.

Sand Dollar Marine Surveyor Palm City, ask that boats undergoing pre-purchase surveys be hauled out for a hull inspection. We have equipment that enables us to inspect boats that are “hauled out” on boat lifts. This is a great advantage to our clients and boat owners who find the trip to a commercial haul out facility is not feasible due to distances involved, scheduling, etc.  That service is available at a modest extra charge and is subject to limitations of access on the lift, such as tide, wind, lift condition and other impediments to accessing the bottom and hull appendages of the boat.
