A Thorough Marine Survey Is The BEST Protection For Your Investment

Marine Surveyor Stuart

(772) 321-2428

Today’s recreational boats are complex structures, often equipped with extensive, high-tech equipment and amenities, including propulsion and auxiliary generating engines and related systems. Expecting a single Marine Surveyor Stuart to be fully expert in all types of engines is akin to expecting a physician in general practice to be expert in neurology, obstetrics, etc. Lawyers also have segmented their practice of law to areas of special expertise. The age of specialization has arrived in marine survey practice as well. Certain types and makes of boats and engines experience recurring problems. A competent engine surveyor will be familiar with most models and will be able to advise you on the long-term suitability of your intended purchase and its equipment, particularly in relation to how and where you will be using it. A factory trained engine technician will also have the test equipment for and specific knowledge of the engines to which his training applies. The analogy is similar for automotive engines as well.

 

The results of a survey by a trained, certified, independent expert Marine Surveyor Stuart expert help a prospective boat owner make an informed decision about the purchase of a particular boat and provide guidance about the engine’s current condition and future maintenance requirements so that necessary recommended service and repairs can be done before deficiencies lead to performance failures.
