Certified Marine Surveys
Marine surveys are performed for pre-purchase, valuation, insurance, accident, fraud, commercial and fishing vessels (CFR46). Yacht management services also available.

What is a marine surveyor?

A marine surveyor inspects a vessel with no preconceived notions regarding the vessel undergoing the survey. The marine surveyor will perform an extensive inspection of the hull, interior and exterior, the mechanical systems and the electrical systems. A marine surveyor’s view is governed by the rules and standards set forth by associations such as The United States Coast Guard, The National Fire Protection Association and The American Boat and Yacht Council.

A Focus on Safety

These associations have established a set of standards with a primary focus on safety. If the vessel undergoing the survey is not in compliance with these standards, or a departure from these standards has taken place, it is the responsibility of the marine surveyor to report the condition and note the probable impact upon the boat to the person employing the marine surveyor.

Prepared, Professional, Focused

The marine surveyor’s survey is prepared and submitted in good faith. It is a description of the condition of the vessel as found, examined and visible on the date of the survey. The surveyor assumes no responsibility for any defects and shall be held harmless for any subsequent conditions arising. The survey does not guarantee either expressed, or implied, the condition of the surveyed vessel. The survey is prepared solely for the individual commissioning the survey.


What Our Clients Say.

I travelled to Key Largo to have March Hare survey a boat I was looking to buy. He was very accommodating and extremely diligent and thorough. March Hare was able to take care of full hull survey and engine survey of computerized Honda outboards. He even documented sea trial and can do fluid analysis on engine oil. Did I mention he was dilligent.... Every single inch of vessel was checked as well as engines and his final report was received in a timely fashion. I would definitely use March Hare again if I needed a survey in the Keys.
