Marine Boat Surveys and Seaworthiness Certifications: A Vessel's Clean Bill of Health

Marine Boat Surveys and Seaworthiness Certifications: A Vessel’s Clean Bill of Health

Owning a boat or vessel can be a rewarding experience, but it also comes with responsibilities. Without regular inspections and maintenance, your once beloved watercraft can quickly become unsafe and even dangerous. Marine surveys are a great way to protect yourself and get a full understanding of the condition of your boat. Sun Coast Marine Surveying provides certified marine surveys in Sarasota and the surrounding areas, ensuring your vessel passes inspection and remains seaworthy.

A marine survey is an objective investigation, evaluation, and assessment of a vessel made by a qualified third-party marine surveyor. The survey examines both the structural components and the systems of the craft, evaluating its condition as well as potential safety issues. It also assesses items such as motors, propellers, bilges, tanks, rigging, wiring, electrical systems, fuel lines, navigation equipment, fire extinguishers and materials used in construction. Following their complete examination, Sun Coast Marine Surveys delivers an unbiased report outlining any recommended repairs or upgrades along with any defects that could endanger operation.

Upon completion of repairs or replacement, Sun Coast Marine Surveys can also provide a Certificate of Seaworthiness or Hull Survey. This document is critical for successful insurance claims and other transactions involving the vessel. Both buyers and sellers of recreational vessels must make sure a full hull survey is carried out prior to the sale to ensure the seaworthiness of the craft and to protect all parties involved.
