Buying a boat is an emotive act - the dream can easily cloud the facts.
Before the deal is done it is wise to seek the opinion of an independent
advisor in the form of a qualified Yacht and Small Craft Surveyor
for a pre-purchase survey.
On the other hand it could be that your insurance company has asked for a survey in which case you will need a slightly different type of document. If you click on 'Types of survey' you will find descriptions of the different surveys that we can provide.
Each of our survey documents is bound and has a ‘glossary’ of nautical terms and a number of short appendices covering subjects appropriate to the particular vessel (you will find copies of most of these appendices on this website). Most of our clients like to keep this bound original so a duplicate, signed copy of the survey sections is supplied for submission to the insurance company.
statement of intent
Josty Consulting was set up five years ago to provide a ‘yacht and small craft’ surveying service to meet the following criteria:–
1 – inspections will be carried out by suitably qualified and experienced operatives.
2 – every survey will be based on a pre-agreed schedule.
3 – survey reports will provide accurate, well researched information on a vessel as found at the time of inspection.
4 – findings will be written in plain English
and such information will be marshalled and presented in a logical manner
for easy location within the report.
6 – no assignment will be undertaken without a 'Survey Contract' being completed and signed.
7 – our 'Terms & Conditions of business' will be available in full either in printed form or on our website.
