Click on the links below to view Fieldhouse Yacht Surveys sample survey reports. Our marine surveys and the resulting report are tailored to the needs and concerns of the client. The depth and breadth of each survey report may vary and depends on various factors such as the age of the vessel, her size, number & complexity of systems on board and the level of sailing experience of the client. Note that the name of the vessel, the name & details of the client and the vessel's registration numbers have been changed in each example report in order to maintain the confidentiality of the client and vessel. If you would like to see a sample marine survey report of an Insurance Survey or Pre-purchase Survey of a specific boat that is not listed here, contact us and we'll check as to whether this type of vessel has already been surveyed by Fieldhouse Yacht Surveys.
Saga 29 Hart Top Motor Cruiser, Pre-purchase Survey
These reports are typically made up of six sections:
Section 1 - Introduction.
This section is less than a page long and briefly describes the purpose of the survey, who it was written for and the vessel location.
Section 2 - Summary.
The survey recommendations are brought together and summarised in this section. These recommendations are also included within sections 5 and 6, which form the bulk of the report.
Section 3 - Scope & Limitations.
This is a one-page section, outlining the scope of the report and also giving details of areas of the boat that couldn't be accessed for inspection, due to fixed panels, fuel tanks etc getting in the way.
Section 4 - Vessel Details.
A one or two page summary of the vessels identification numbers, principal dimensions and details of any documents inspected. If any Bills of Sale, Builder's certificate, VAT certificate and Registration documents are seen, they may be detailed in this section.
Section 5 - The Survey.
This section is often between 16 and 20 pages long and describes the majority of the findings of the survey. The recommendations appear within the text of this section but are also repeated in the Summary.
