Our Services


Superyachts are incredibly complex vessels and require a special sort of attention. We are able to offer new superyacht owners a full and comprehensive service, from the yacht's initial design all the way through to its pre-delivery inspection and beyond. For existing yachts, we offer the full range of surveying options and advice on refits and maintenance. Whatever your superyacht requirement is, we can can you the utmost professionalism.

Small Craft (Under 24 Metres)

If you are purchasing or own a yacht under 24 metres and require a survey for any reason, then we can help. Whether it be for determining the yacht's condition, for insurance reasons, for finance or you require assistance with yacht registration and/or compliance, we can offer the service you need.

Commercial Vessels

If you are a shipping company / ship owner then we offer a range of services to the commercial sector including MCA commercial compliance, on-off hire surveys and pre-purchase surveys amongst others. All services are tailored uniquely to each instruction, so whatever your requirement, we can help.

Marine Engineering

We have unrivalled expertise in the inspection of all types of structure (hull/superstructure) and all main and auxiliary machinery used in the marine industry. We can carry out full inspections to determine the condition of any structural and/or mechanical installation as well as the cause of any malfunction and damage.


Marine cargo surveying is a growing specialisation especially as more and more products are being transported by sea. We cover the full range of cargo surveying services, both nationally and internationally, with associations with all the country's main docks and container terminals. Our reports are clear but concise and inform clients of any and all issues identified.


Marine consultancy can cover literally any maritime based industry. All too often, consultants don't have the breadth of experience to make and/or give an informed opinion. Whatever your requirement, whether it be the refit of an aging yacht, a lashing plan for non standard cargo or even a rescue plan for a failing shipyard / boatyard - we would be more than happy to assist.
