Vessel damage caused by fire, collision, grounding, heavy weather, water ingress or equipment failure usually requires an urgent response, in order to prevent further damage or loss. The Insured also expects an efficient and timely response to their claim. For this reason, Fieldhouse Yacht Surveys normally carry out the Damage Survey within 24 to 48 hours of the Client's instruction.
