Mecal information

Marine Surveys UK are a member of MECAL certified Surveyors Level A2



MECAL has a worldwide network of highly qualified & experienced professional surveyors.

Our surveyors are appointed & monitored by our Professional Standards Committee.

Surveyors are graded according to experience & qualifications, from entry level A3, (requiring full Head Office & mentor supervision) through A2, A1 to A0 (chartered professional engineers or naval architects having equivalent professional standing to senior & principal Class Society Surveyors).

We can carry out surveys for:

  • MCA Code Certification
  • Jersey Code Certification
  • Jersey Fishing Vessel Certification
  • Superyacht Certification
  • New Build & Refit Supervision
  • Tonnage Measurement for Registration
  • Valuation Surveys (eg for mortgage or insurance)

We find that most clients are more interested in the safety of their vessel & the security of their investment & are not impressed with narrative and expansive survey reports that are fleshed out by trivial observations. Our approach is to highlight items that are important for our client, to prioritise their degree of seriousness & to recommend the best course of action to rectify deficiencies.

Surveys are driven by the need to assess Risk.
