Yacht Surveyor Costs

We base our yacht surveyor costs and fees on giving you value for money and paying us for the work we do and our insurance costs. We do not charge VAT.   Travel costs are free for surveys conducted in the Solent including Portsmouth, Chichester, Southampton area.

RIBS, Sports boats and small simple GRP boats with outboard engines or no engines we start at £14 per foot for insurance surveys, often cheaper over the winter or for groups in one place.

Single inboard engine GRP motor and sail boats with few systems surveyed ashore only from £15 per foot.

After this we take into account the length and breadth, the complexity of the boat, her systems, her location and value and quote accordingly for Pre-purchase surveys or consultancy. We will always be fair, taking account time spent working for you at a fair rate.

MCA coding examination – We code either through MECAL or YDSA, fees are set by them and MCA pre examination advice, preparation and survey is normally charged by the hour but quoted for before hand.

Tonnage – fees again are set by YDSA/MECAL.

Please note that any Cranes/lift outs, pressure washing etc. is in addition to the above.
