Default survey cost ?

What does a boat survey cost ? 32 foot boat twin. Is it a legal bidding note, or just a BS paper

Survey's in this area are around $13.00 per foot....they are a good thing to get especially if your buying a boat, they check for such things as bad stringers, moisture in hull, transom condition, de-lamination.....they also check to see if all equip. is operable....they do put a value of what the boat is worth in their opinion....which is sometimes required by loan company's (banks) and insurance company's.......Fred

I think I paid $17 a foot in May of 2001. That was by Marine Forensics out of Annapolis.

Thumbs up

Very real and very worthwhile, however some surveyor's are more proficient on sailing vessels than powerboats. So pick yours carefully by his/her experience.
I would charge 10.00 ft for conditional and appraisle, while a full added mechanical would push you to 15.00 per ft.
The information you will obtain could save you ten's of thousands of your hard earned dollars. A good inspection is usually required for a used boat loan and insurance.

No matter what it costs, it is worth it.

I didn't do it once and it cost me, the second time, I did it and I am glad that I did.
