A marine survey is an inspection of a vessel to determine its overall condition. An experienced consultant knows that an exterior that is polished and clean may not always constitute a ship in good condition. Our marine survey expert witnesses know the processes to examine watercraft thoroughly, well beyond the outer image. A marine survey is a comprehensive analysis of the vessel, encompassing each of the systems on the craft to ensure that it is in good working condition. There are several types of surveys. These include Condition & Valuation (C&V) for purchase and insurance; Condition & Valuation (C&V) solely for insurance; damage inspection; appraisals; and corrosion inspections.
The expertise of our witnesses includes examinations into the condition and valuation of vessels, trip and tow surveys, salvage and recovery operations, insurance fraud, loss prevention, damage assessment, and catastrophe response. They also conduct initial inspection of vessels for Coast Guard certification.
These expert witnesses are members in prestigious associations like the Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors (SAMS), the National Association of Marine Surveyors (NAMS), and the International Association of Marine Surveyors (IAMI). They are Certified Marine Investigators.
