Matt makes every effort to make the survey process as easy as possible. In my case he worked around the tides so that he could survey my boat whilst on the scrubbing piles at Itchenor.
He communicates well and answers all questions by responding very quickly, in my case by tests and emails.
The report was detailed and also contained many useful extra observations and comments. The report structure made it easy to understand and use as a checklist for works that needed doing along with a very useful suggested timescale for the work.
I have approached surveyors in the past, but have been put off by their formality and price. I would have no problem repeating the process with Matt as the surveyor.
Thanks for the survey Matt. The small jobs you found are all done (one could have become much more serious) and the insurance man is happy so well worth getting it done. Thanks!
Matt was very helpful, not just in terms of the survey but also with other guidance and advice in respect of the boat. I’d have no hesitation in recommending him.
Matt was super helpful and friendly above and beyond the call of duty and very supportive of me as a first time nervous boat buyer.
His report was thorough and easy to understand, and he welcomed questions and explained anything that needed clarifying.
He saved me £10,000 off the price of my boat purchase.
I felt that I got not only a great survey, but also my first boating lesson!
Was first introduced to Matt West, when he was asked to survey my yacht when i was selling.
I was very impressed with his service and very pragmatic approach to surveying a yacht, taking into consideration the age and usage.
For that reason, i then decided to use Matt again when i purchased a new yacht for myself.
I would highly recommend using Matt West.
Fast ,efficient , helpful and informative service . Thanks again !!
Survey style and manner was great – unfortunately the owner was not that easy to handle insurancewise
Matt did a very sensible and practical survey that was not overly pedantic or picky but gave a very good assessment of salient and important points. I took his advice to heart.
Very thorough and was accommodating of me looking over his shoulder. Matt explained everything very well and after a month of getting to know the boat i have not discovered any new problems. I would definately recommend Matts services.
A very comprehensive report at a reasonable price.
Survey was thorough, and written in plain English. Any recommendations were prioritised so very helpful.
Survey was carried out in a timely manner. Identified all the issues with the boat.
A really nice guy, very knowledgeable and helpful. The report was clear and easily understood and all findings were clearly put into perspective for me. Thoroughly recommended!
Matt did a great job, supporting me from start to finish and coming up with common sense solutions to potentially tricky problems. I will certainly be instructing Matt for my future surveying needs.
Our 1984 Sunseeker 25 XPS Portofino required a safety / condition report for insurance purposes. This was carried out very efficiently and without fuss.
