A qualified marine survey, performed by a professionally trained and experienced marine surveyor offers protection for you, your family and friends from a potentially unsuitable or unsafe vessel with both safety and financial implications.
You should feel free to interview the marine surveyor regarding his or her qualifications and experience. When you decide on your surveyor, you should feel comfortable discussing all aspects of the boat and have a clear understanding of what you can expect in terms of the scope and content of the marine survey.
We are based on the lower Western side of Lake Michigan, in the City of Racine
