What to expect from a professionally conducted Marine Survey


  Marine Surveyors

 Capt. Joe Berta

Recreational boats and commercial vessels surveyed in all sizes and construction mediums for Pre-Purchase, Underwriting and Banking since 1988.

Our reputation is backed by a huge number of real and unsolicited testimonials of Clients as well as Insurance Underwriters, who can be contacted by any bona fide party interested in our services.

Our survey reports are produced to higher Content Standards than those prescribed by the leading Accreditation Societies and Trade Associations.

While the trend in the industry regarding survey reports appears to be gravitating toward lawsuit avoidance and use of long winded disclaimers with less and less useful content, our reports contain no fillers. You get specifically composed results of an extremely thorough inspection carried out by Surveyors who did not learn the trade in a classroom and are not limited in expertise to a standards based knowledge.
