With my many years of survey experience combined with the best training from my mentors over the years and regular study into regulations, defects, repairs and maintenance, I believe I can offer you a quality service which is completely independent and unbiased. My inspections and reports are at the top level of effort.
Feel free to contact me and ask any question you wish about yachts or the yacht sale process.
I am insured for professional indemnity and therefore I must be completely independent and report on all defects I find. I hope clients get the same pleasure from yachting as I do.
