Solent Marine Surveyor

How can I help?

From our base on the Isle of Wight, I survey private yachts and commercial vessels for pre-purchase, insurance or valuation purposes up to 30mtrs LOA throughout the Solent and across most of the South coast.

Please give me a call to discuss your survey requirements, I love talking boats and would be happy to give you a quote for your needs. The first question most people ask is what will a yacht survey cost?

My Surveying Background

Over the last 25 years, I have worked as a captain and engineer on all shapes and sizes of yachts and commercial vessels. When I join a new boat the first task is always to assess the condition and prioritise a job list so I have effectively been 'surveying' yachts for over 25 years!

I hold Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance to survey private or commercial vessels up to 30mtrs LOA and I am an affiliate member of the International Institute of Marine Surveyors and the YDSA.

As you explore my website, you will see that I am passionate about keeping vessels in a safe, seamanlike condition so this job is perfect for me.

Jim Logue
I can’t say and thank Cameron enough for all he did professionally, supportive and caring for every aspect of inspection, sea trial and reporting of every important detail of his inspection of the boat. He is the best person I have met in the business in a long, long time. I would recommend to anybody present or not present during inspection and sea trials to use Cameron, because he is an exceptional professional. If I would do it again, Cameron would be the only person I would ever use.

Cameron surveyed the Beneteau Antares boat that I recently purchased and also carried-out a sea trial. The survey was very detailed and informative and mentioned items that were missing. He did the sea trial very professionally and gave all the help I needed. I would recommend him without hesitation. He is a very useful man to know if you have a boat!!!
Robin Behroozi
Cameron was excellent. A detailed survey finding at least one very well hidden fault. He was very helpful in discussing the issues he found. A nice man and a very experienced sailor. I'd recommend him highly.

Alan Titchmarsh
I was keen to get a survey carried out quickly so I could purchase a beneteau first 36s7 in East cowes. I made contact with Cameron he was very helpful and carried out a very comprehensive survey the following week. Highly recommended Cheers. Mat.
Mat Girling
We purchased a Fairline Targa and needed a survey carrying out quickly. Cameron was recommended to us by another well respected surveyor who was unable to meet our tight deadline. Despite being busy himself, Cameron offered to help and 48 hours later had completed the survey and fed back his initial findings ahead of the full written report. Great service and a really helpful and nice guy to deal with. Highly recommended.
Peter Hand
