A Thorough Marine Survey Is The BEST Protection For Your Investment

Marine Surveyor St. Augustine, FL

Thank you for considering Sand Dollar Marine Surveyor St. Augustine services. A condition and value survey for insurance underwriting (sometimes requested by lending institutions as well) is a general inspection that focuses on the boat’s hull and deck structure, rigging, machinery installations, thru-hull fittings and their associated piping and steering, fuel, exhaust and electrical systems. Other systems commonly referred to as “comfort systems” receive a brief overview. Our surveys include a written report of the surveyor’s observations, recommendations for repairs and corrections and an opinion of current market value and replacement cost that insurance underwriters and marine lenders rely upon when making financial decisions. Marine Surveyor St. Augustine is guaranteed to be accepted by your financial and/or insurance underwriter.


While insurance and pre-purchase surveys employ identical inspection methods, they differ in scope. An insurance survey report is not intended for use in making Pre - purchase decisions and should not be considered a full survey for this purpose. Rather, an insurance survey report conveys the surveyor’s impression of the boat’s general condition with particular attention to conditions with risk potential for casualty losses due to fire, explosion, sinking, flooding, personal injury, etc. Its format is tailored to the special needs of insurance underwriters and omits descriptive and operational detail often considered valuable to prospective boat buyers.

Insurance inspections are conducted in a thorough and professional manner with due care and diligence. No assurance can be made, however, that every deficiency will be discovered in the time allotted for the examination. The facts as discovered and presented in our written report should not be deemed a guarantee or warranty, either expressed or implied, for the boat, its machinery or equipment. Marine Surveyor St. Augustine observations are strictly in the nature of opinion and may be subject to further qualification. Although we prefer to have access to the hull bottom, many underwriters do not require that a boat be hauled for and underwriting survey. Surveys intended for use by insurance underwriters are limited to visual inspection, with no underway operation or sea trials. No propulsion or auxiliary generating machinery is started.
