Hi Matt, 

I completed the purchase of the Hallberg-Rassy last Friday and just wanted to thank you for the work you did on the survey  – comprehensive and very helpful. 
Best wishes Robert

Matt goes through a boat inch-by-inch checking even the most mundane items and structures for possible faults. If you want to buy a boat with confidence, he’s your man. Just one example, I was interested in the detailed condition of the anchor locker. This was not covered in full in the survey because there was no reason to dwell on it. The structure in that part of the boat was in good order. However, in response to my call – and within minutes – Matt emailed me a detailed series of photographs plus a summary of what he had seen in the locker. This was the work of a real professional who I would wholeheartedly recommend.

I contacted Matt to do an insurance survey on my 35 year old, 36ft sailing boat. Communication was good and we arranged to meet whilst the survey was being carried out. As in all surveys there are things that need correcting and potential problems being identified. Matt was very good at explaining all aspects of the survey.
The result was a very comprehensive and thorough survey report clearly identifying any problems, how to resolve them and the time span in which they should be done.
Surveys are always a bit traumatic however, Matts approach, help and advice made it a good experience.
Matts services are highly recommended.

Very friendly and professional, survey was undertaken at a suitable time for the seller and the report was detailed enough for me to make a decision about the boat.  Would recommend to anyone looking to get a survey on their boat.

We commissioned Matt West to oversee a recent barge conversion over a duration of circa nine months. Given our inexperience, we needed specific expertise and were delighted with the professional service Matt provided. He supervised the project management, guiding us at each stage of the renovation including attending regular site visits and assisting with key decisions.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Matt to project manage any further marine refurbishments.

Matt provided an extremely professional service with regard to the pre purchase survey. He was most helpful on the day of the survey, spending time explaining and discussing points identified and recommended fixes to pragmatically resolve. The survey report was delivered the within 48 hours and was presented in a way that was easy to understand and extract key points that needed to be addressed with the Yacht Broker. I have no hesitation highly recommending Marine Surveys UK based upon the services provided

A very comprehensive report delivered timely. The survey was of excellent quality and very informative in decision making for my pre purchase survey. Matt clearly applies the highest quality standards and really assisted me during the process of finding the right boat. I would not hesitate to recommend Marine surveys uk.

I contacted Matt from Australia to engage his services to survey a boat in England.  Matt’s communication was first class and he was meticulous with the survey itself.  Matt’s reports are easy to read and gave me a lot of confidence with my purchasing decision.  Highly recommended.

Matt performed the survey including sea trial to the highest standard. He highlighted some issues that needed addressing before we completed the purchase and checked the repairs after they were complete. Since the purchase no further problems have been detected so I consider the survey to be thorough and would recommend Matt to any boat purchaser.
