What's a yacht and small craft marine surveyor worth?

ABOUT US

This is Midlands Boat Surveys with a former Class 1 Deck certificated deep sea British Master Mariner (Captain) at the helm based in Newark on Trent , Nottinghamshire. Over 13 years, experience was gained on deep sea service on cargo freighters, bulk carriers, timber carriers, container ships trading globally and latterly, with offshore supply and support vessels in the north and central North Sea; Norwegian Sea; English Channel, Irish Sea, the Canadian Labrador coast, and Grand Banks of Canada.

A member of BMSE, IIMS and YDSA associations. 

My local marinas in the East Midlands are Burton Waters (Lincoln); Farndon; Newark & Kings Marinas, Kingfisher Wharf, Redhill, Mercia Marine, and Sawley Marina. I, regularly, travel to Spalding, Ipswich, Bromsgrove, Coventry, Chester, Garstang, North Kilworth, Maldon, Lichfield, Thorne, Goole, Hull, (Naburn) York, Hinckley, Stoke Golding, Ipswich, Suffolk,  River Thames, River Severn, and River Avon locations, and other wider UK locations. Indeed, many of my southern England based clients ask me to survey their second or third purchased boats as a result of my earlier survey engagement work. 

 

I bring time served maritime experience, knowledge, safety focus, thoroughness, and rigour for the process of performing pre-purchase, condition, insurance surveys and other consultancy related works.  

For BSS survey needs I partner with Jimmy Blockley John Stone, Hannah Cope, and Mike Small. All are more than happy to meet any timeline, location and vessel needs you may have.
