Welcome to Yacht Surveying in the Greek Islands
Surveying in the Preveza and Lefkada Area.
I am available to help with your surveying needs in the Preveza and Lefkada area. This area is very busy with Lefkada, Cleopatra, Aktio and Preveza marinas, being home to so many boats. Pre-purchase surveys, Insurance surveys or Valuations. I look at every boat in great detail and report to you in plain English. As a yacht and boat surveyor it is my job to represent you when buying your yacht. So that is exactly what will do for you. Clifford Blaylock, Marine Surveying, About Us.
A surveyor’s knowledge
As, a surveyor I must have a good knowledge of the materials used in the marine industry and be able to detect any defects. A good surveyor will devise as many tests as possible to detect defects. The owner or a boatyard doing any repair work will sometimes try to hide defects. I record all tests carried out during an inspection in my report. So it is important that you have a survey carried out when buying a boat. But also it is important that you receive a good report. Please take a look at my blog with some recent report excerpts.
I base yacht surveyor costs and fees on giving you value for your money. This is for the work we do and our PI insurance and third party liability insurance costs. If you need a survey around the Preveza/Lefkada area, there will be no travel costs. However, I will charge travel at cost if you need a survey outside of this area, quoted in advance.
RIBS, Sports boats and small simple GRP boats with outboard engines or no engines we start at £14 per foot for insurance surveys in the winter. Below 40 feet, single inboard engine GRP motor and sail boats with few systems surveyed ashore only from £15 per foot. If you wish the surveyor to be present at sea trials, I will quote an extra hourly rate.
I will quote for boats above 40 feet on the complexity of the boat, her systems and her value. We will always give you a fair rate and our prices will be competitive for the area.
