As a novice to boating or an experienced hand, confidence in your chosen craft is paramount to enjoyment of your time aboard.

Your investment is often large and precious moments have been taken in searching for the correct boat, now comes your commitment to ensuring it is safe and a worthy investment.

  • Covering the South UK including Poole & Southampton
  • Europe by request
  • Fully insured
  • IIMS
  • At your request I can

    • carry out a pre-purchase survey to ascertain the crafts condition and highlight any potential problems
    • compile a valuation report based on the current market
    • inspect a specific area to give a detailed analysis or survey damage, giving my opinion on repair procedures
    • manage the work.

    For the purpose of gaining insurance, most companies insist on a survey to confirm the safety/value of the craft.

    I specialise in GRP (glass reinforced plastic), FRP (fibre reinforced plastic) and composite vessels and have over 15 years experience in building, bespoke alterations and repairs to GRP and wooden craft through our sister company Rio Marine
