Record Number of Yacht Load Surveys Completed

Posted by Marine-Surveying on
b2ap3_thumbnail_Record01.jpgSince the beginning of May 2007 our cargo surveyors have supervised and surveyed the loading of a staggering 185 yachts both new and used. Cargo condition and securing surveys have ranged from a 7.5m rigid inflatable tender shipping to its new superyacht mother ship to the monterous Sunseeker 37m (hull no. 2) loaded following the Southampton Boat Show for shipment to the USA.

Surveys are undertaken on behalf of owners, shipping agents or insurers. Applications apply to the assessment of lifting gear (our surveyors are all NOPRS trained) and examination of securing arrangements to ISO standards.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Record02.jpgSurveys have mainly focused on UK imports and exports but this summers appointments have taken our surveyors and bank of subcontractors as far afield as Turkey, Holland, Belgium, France, Palma, Italy and Gibraltar.

Survey contracts have ranged from the shipping of single vessels on container ships to multiple loading yacht transhipment vessels taking up to 24 boats at a time to various destinations including the Miami International Boat Show, Genoa Boat Show and currently the Barcelona Boat Show.
