Each survey is based on ABYC and USCG CFR's standards.

Why have a Boat Surveyed?

Buying any boat (even new) is a gamble. The older the boat and the lower the price the greater the risk. Some models and types are better or worse "bets". A survey can not provide a guarantee that the boat is completely free of defects (probably no boat ever is). What a survey should do is provide an experienced eye and professional opinion to improve the odds of a successful outcome for you. "Coastal Marine Surveyors have extensive experience with all manner of power and sailboat and can make the buying part of your boating life or experience the best ever". Captain Bob Edwards.
