This is the most comprehensive type of inspection, and is strongly advised when purchasing a new or used vessel. Condition and overall operation of the vessel should be examined. This covers structural integrity, electrical systems, the propulsion system, the fuel system, other machinery, navigation equipment, miscellaneous on-board systems, cosmetic appearance, electronics, and overall maintenance as well as an out-of-water inspection and a sea trial.
This survey is performed so the insurance company can determine whether or not the vessel rigging is of acceptable risk. A annual rigging survey is highly recommended by all manufactures of spars, and rigging companies. This is a set standard within the sailing marine industry and most insurance companies.
A rigging survey will give you a view and thorough report of what most owners and captains do not see. This survey consists of spars and structure of, standing rigging, running rigging, all systems aloft including external mounted hardware, electronics, fittings and sails. A full report. This report includes a direct replacement schedule and service schedule with proper measurements of rigging components for a quote by your choice of rigging professionals.
This inspection is performed to gather enough information to justify or determine the fair market value of the vessel. This is normally needed for financing, estate settlements, donations and legal cases.
The surveyor can be retained by an insurance company to determine the cause of a loss and determine the extent of loss related damage and may be asked to recommend repairs, review estimates, and determine the pre-loss value of a vessel. A vessel owner can retain a surveyor for the same purposes, but for the owner's behalf.
