Popular Marine Surveyor Terms

A marine survey is a written examination that results from an extensive examination of a boat. Surveyors will inspect the engineering of the boat to ensure that all equipment on board is operational and determine whether any parts need to be repaired. Those who are purchasing a boat will commission the survey to determine its condition. The survey will help prospective buyers understand the value of the vessel. Before someone employs a marine surveyor to inspect a boat, it's important to ensure that they are accredited with an certifying organization. Those who want to become a surveyor can graduate with marine engineering or technology degree.

    Marine survey companies offer inspection and exam services to companies before they build structures like boat docks, train tracks, and buildings on the water or by a shore. The marine survey inspection tests the structure to make sure it has a high safety rating and is in good condition for people to use. The companies test the buildings to make sure they comply with the codes for the area, but these building codes often vary depending on the kind of structure you have. A boat dock that holds yachts is not expected to pass the exact same safety exam as a structure that holds heavy machinery and industrial equipment. Just like you need to have buildings on land inspected for insurance purposes, you might need to hire a marine survey company before you can get insurance. They will make sure that your boat dock meets condition standards and that it is designed to hold the quantity of yachts, ships, sailboats, and other sea vessels that you plan to keep there. If you are building train tracks that cross the water, then they can make sure that your bridge meets all of the statutes required by law. They can also use them as witnesses that your structure is properly designed and constructed after they investigate it so you will not be held liable if something breaks. When you call the surveyors, you should ask them how many years of experience they have. In general, you want to choose a company with several years of experience because they can offer the best services.
