Scheduling Survey and Sea Trial for Acceptance

After your offer is accepted, your purchase agreement will indicate an "Acceptance Date". Before or on this date, it is essential to provide the seller with either an acceptance or rejection of the vessel following the survey and report process.

The survey entails a comprehensive inspection of the vessel, typically conducted by a certified surveyor. It involves a sea trial, haul-out to assess the condition of the hull and propulsion systems, as well as a mechanical survey.

Rest assured, you will receive an email containing survey details, including a list of licensed surveyors near the location of the vessel. It is the buyer's responsibility to choose a suitable surveyor who meets their specific inspection requirements.
