Superyachts are incredibly complex vessels and require a special sort of attention. We are able to offer new superyacht owners a full and comprehensive service, from the yacht's initial design all the way through to its pre-delivery inspection and beyond. For existing yachts, we offer the full range of surveying options and advice on refits and maintenance. Whatever your superyacht requirement is, we can can you the utmost professionalism.

Superyacht Survey Types

A superyacht survey is a much more thorough version of our small craft surveys, but still following the exact same procedures. We can offer multiple types of survey depending on the requirement, such as full condition, insurance, structural etc. Please click on the heading to discover the full list of options available to you.

New Build Project Management

Having a new yacht built can be a daunting experience and so to assist owners, we provide a service where we are able to act as your representative in the shipyard. In this context, we would therefore be your eyes and ears on the ground and ensure that all aspects from concept through to final handover go as smoothly as possible.

Pre-Delivery Inspection

With your new superyacht completed, the final step before you take ownership is a pre-delivery inspection - more commonly known as PDI. This will ensure that the yacht is 100% complete and that any defects or issues are found and dealt with before the yacht is finally handed over.


We are able to offer a full compliance service for all yachts up to 24m in length known as the MGN 280 code. If you are wishing to use your yacht in a commercial arena, this is what you need to ensure it complies with existing regulations. For yachts over 24m in length, this falls under the LY3 code and for this, please contact us for further details.

Refit Services / Project Management

There comes a time when your superyacht needs an update or a total refit. Perhaps you are considering purchasing a used superyacht, but want to modernise it. Whatever the case, it is highly recommended that you have a representative in the chosen shipyard to ensure all work is carried out correctly and to the required set standards according to the class of the superyacht and the waters it will sail in.
