I doubt that I could have chosen a more dedicated and hard working professional to undertake the duties you performed for me last week…. everything I have read about a good surveyor in magazines such as Cruising Helmsman was brought to bear on the boat during the course of the inspection…. once again, thank you for your professionalism and dedicated service in the performance of the task

Mark . Thanks for your assistance in arranging the inspection and preparing the comprehensive report in a timely manner.  Your recommendations and tips on defects, upcoming maintenance and scheduled maintenance will be particularly useful.

M.A. – Sea Ray 260

Let me say that this is the most thorough and careful survey that I have ever commissioned, and I have had a few. The colour coded summary checklist you gave us immediately was very clear in feeding back information to the owners. Also the final report document is easily the best structured and complete that I have seen.  I want to thank you again for your work and I will wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a survey.

D.H. - Beneteau Oceanis 351

Incredibly detailed and thorough inspection of the yacht I purchased. Made buying from interstate not an issue – I think we knew more about the boat after the survey than the current owner.  Great job and well worth the investment Mark
