We attend the vessel upon factory completion to undertake a full specification appraisal which includes a sea trial, full systems testing and interior/exterior cosmetic surveys amongst other issues. In practice, this is a full 'quality audit' throughout the length of the vessel, inside and out, identifying cosmetic defects and finishing issues. We also incorporate a full systems test and a sea trial prior to dispatch to confirm vessel performance and handling using independent skippers.
Once completed, we raise a worklist which documents every defect for rectification by the factory and forms the basis for sign-off. Vessels over 20m in length may require additional days to complete the full first inspection. The PDI is usually completed in line with shipping / delivery schedules and we will endeavour to update the worklist and submit an electronic copy within the day of each inspection and within 24 hours at the very latest. We will liaise directly with the shipyard to arrange survey attendances and ensure 100% completion of all issues prior to dispatch.
