TYPES OF SURVEYS

PRE-PURCHASE SURVEY

Perhaps the most common of all surveys, but maybe the most important. A pre-purchase survey is the most comprehensive of all reports.

Condition & Value Survey

Usually, this type of survey is performed to satisfy an insurance company’s request for a survey prior to renewing your hull policy.

Pre-Sale Survey

Gaining popularity, often times an owner will request this survey in order to better prepare the vessel for sale.

Abandoned Boat Survey

If you have an abandoned boat on your property, the State of Ohio recently made it easier for you to get title to the boat.

CONSULTING

I provide hourly consulting for customers who may just need some questions answered about a boat or research fair market values. I can meet with you at your boat OR at a boat that you are thinking about purchasing.

Travel costs and your time are valuable. Let me do some legwork for you. I can take digital images and videos to offer you a virtual tour of a vessel you are interested in. Let me be your agent to supervise the progression of a repair or a re-fit project. I can be “Your Eyes” for a variety of situations.

  • Very easy to work with. As this was my first boat, I appreciated that Bryan guided me through how to make the arrangements to get the inspection done. Then report was detailed with advice on what was important to do as a first-time boat owner. Would highly recommend.

    I just had a Tiara 3100 Open surveyed by Bryan Shrock. He replied immediately to my first email requesting his services. Then he scheduled the survey promptly and coordinated with my broker. The boat was in another state and I couldn't attend. He contacted me by email right after the survey to provide an update. The survey was done on a Monday and by Wednesday, I had received the 61 page report. It was extremely thorough and complete. I strongly recommend Bryan for your marine survey.

    Pre-Purchase Survey

    Pre-Purchase ImagePerhaps the most common of all surveys, but maybe the most important. A pre-purchase survey is the most comprehensive of all reports. I will address and inspect all systems and areas of a vessel that are accessible to me. I will comment on structural, mechanical, safety, appearance, amenities and market value. You will want this survey to include an out-of-water inspection and often times, I will ride along with you on a sea trial. The PDF document I produce will allow you to make informed decisions about whether to purchase, selling price, financing and insurance.

    Condition & Value Image 2Condition & Value Survey

    Usually, this type of survey is performed to satisfy an insurance company’s request for a survey prior to renewing your hull policy. This survey focuses on safety, structural, some mechanical and overall seaworthiness. It is not as comprehensive as a pre-purchase survey. It may or may not require an out-of-water inspection, depending on your insurance company’s wishes.

    Gaining popularity, often times an owner will request this survey in order to better prepare the vessel for sale. It can range from an hour or two of consulting to a comprehensive inspection similar to a pre-purchase survey.

    If you have an abandoned boat on your property, the State of Ohio recently made it easier for you to get title to the boat. One of the conditions is that the boat be surveyed to determine that it’s worth less than $10,000. I can provide you with an affordable inspection and document to fulfil that condition.
