Why Use Vessel Check?

Vessel check combines years of experience in the marine industry to successfully manage the pre-purchasing and insurance processes involved with buying and owning a boat.
Electronic Report

We use an electronic reporting system which greatly simplifies the survey results making them easy to read and understand. Our report uses a traffic light system and automatically provides you with a list of things we think need attending. Best of all, our report is available to you before we leave the inspection site.

Fully Insured

Using our qualifications and industry experience we are able to obtain insurance for our business. Without these formal qualifications the appropriate level of insurance is not possible.

Industry Experience

We have spent 20 years in the industry as a broker and in recent years a surveyor. So we have participated in hundreds of marine surveys and boats sales and understand fully what is required in managing all interested parties in this process.

I have questions about a boat I want to purchase

If you are considering buying a boat you may be buying privately or through a broker/dealer. As a broker, I always recommend an independent inspection is carried out on the vessel. Not only will this report highlight any future issues you may have but it will also help to get insurance should you proceed with the sale.

My boat was damaged, what do I need to do?

If your boat is damaged contact your insurer straight away and start the claims process. Generally they will contact a surveyor/assessor to inspect the damage on their behalf however, If you would prefer to obtain an independent assessment of the circumstances and damage to your boat then please give us a call.

My Insurance company is asking for a vessel report

Ask the insurance company to send you a copy of the report they require and then contact us. We can walk you through the process and costs involved and then book a time to get access to the boat.

    Testimonials From Happy Boat Owners

    We engaged Vessel Check to conduct a pre purchase survey for us on a vessel we thought was sound. The team at vessel check identified a number of issues which made it difficult for us to proceed and had we not engaged their services we may well have had to carry out expensive repairs.


    Vessel check carried out a pre purchase inspection on a boat we looked at buying. There were a number of issues due to the age of the vessel but Matt was able to quantify those and work through them to ensure we were fully informed and educated before making our final decision. We would thoroughly recommend a survey before buying any boat.
