|Whether you are looking for a 13' Boston Whaler, a 12 1/2 Herreshoff, 33 Bertram, Frers 41, 50' Sea Ray, or a larger sailing/motor yacht, you will receive my full attention to every detail. My clients are diverse. They own Oyster farming Work Skiffs, Southern Ocean Ketch's, and Feadships. I have been surveying for 20 years and the past 15 years as a full time marine surveyor. This is my only profession.
Some surveyors do not like to survey small vessels or boats. Not so here. Every client and vessel deserves a competent survey and is treated the same way.
Insurance companies please see my Damage Claim Investigation page.
Ethics and Education - Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors
We as SAMS surveyors pride ourselves on keeping up with education credits in a highly technical industry and abide by strict ethical codes. This includes not taking a job you are not qualified for. Refer it to someone else. I would rather have the recommendation from a broker to survey a vessel for their sister, than to be on their referral list for all surveyors. Hopefully you are on both. If you are then that means the broker wants what is best for their client and that is repeat business. Ethics, Education, and a Thorough survey are my benchmarks. That is how you stay in business.
Who Needs a Survey
If you are in the market for a used boat, or if you are in the market for insurance coverage for a boat you own, or has never had a marine survey. Then you may be required to provide your finance company or your insurance company with a current marine survey.
Please check with your insurance company before you buy to see if a survey is required. Some people come to me after the fact and then a lot of items are discovered that could have been found in a Pre Purchase survey. Most importantly, you should want to know all recommendations about the vessel you want to purchase. From cosmetic items like varnish flaking to major items like widespread stringer/frame delamination. Now you can make an informed decision and in most cases safety and structural items are negotiated off the selling price.
|All our surveys are performed with analysis and reports based on American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and US Coast Guard safety and inspection guidelines and standards. These non-profit organizations are the benchmark of a good Marine Surveyor. Surveys are accepted by all insurance companies and banks. Coastal Marine Surveyors serves Massachusetts, Cape Cod and the Islands, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Maine, and the Northeast. Providing service for Yachts and Small Craft.||Contact:
