JMS Marine Services Limited is a Northwest based, family run business specialising in Pre-Purchase Condition, Insurance and Damage Surveys for Yachts and Small Craft.

Their resident surveyor has studied with the International Boat-building Technical College and the International Institute of Marine Surveyors. He currently holds the internationally recognised Diploma in Yacht and Small Craft Surveying and RYA  certificates in offshore yachting.

Pre-Purchase Condition Survey

The Pre-Purchase Condition Survey is the most common survey undertaken by a Yacht and Small Craft Surveyor.
A potential client would have found a suitable boat, paid a percentage of the asking price as a deposit and the sale would have been agreed subject to survey.

The purpose of the survey is, therefore, to determine the condition of the vessel, listing any defects the vessel may have before the sale is closed. The results of the survey would then assure the client that the vessel is in good order and worth the asking price or, alternatively, could be used as a negotiating tool in the event of costly repairs needing to be done. The vessel may also be in such a state of disrepair that the client may choose to walk away from the sale losing only his deposit. The minimum areas covered by a Pre-Purchase Condition Survey are shown below:

Whatever the outcome, this type of survey is a must for the potential buyer. The results of the survey are recorded and passed on to the client, in total confidence, in the form of an easy to read, photo-filled, professionally bound document. A CD-ROM containing an electronic copy of the report and all photographs taken during the survey is also available on request.
