Boat Survey

Guys, does anyone know roughly what it costs to get a structural survey done on a c7m rib, id probably also want some base engine checks ?

I've got a few boats I'm interested in, at this stage its just to get some idea of current typical inspection costs,

Thanks in advance for any info

If I was buying a rib I don't think I would bother with a hull survey unless it was very old or didn't seem right in some way. Once ashore, you shoul be able to check the hull for problems.

However, I would get an engineers report on the engine. If it's relatively modern, then an engineer shoul be able to hook it up to a laptop and get a full printout of hours, faults, usage, etc. If it's a non engine management model, then you either have to rely on its service record or get an engineer to physically check it.

We typically pay 49 for a computer printout and about the same for a physical check.

Hope that helps

You get what you settle for!
