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.

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.

    positive review  Cameron has just completed an out of water survey and valuation on my yacht. His work was done in an efficient, competent and professional manner. His report was thorough and honest and showed his expertise and experience in his profession. The report gave sound advice on the present and future maintenance of the vessel and how to keep it in a sound and safe condition. Highly recommended. 5 Stars

    positive review  Cameron installed a new autopilot system on my ancient boat in a remote yard with poor communications. He accomplished the task with splendid neatness, demonstrating throughout his labours skill, insight and a genius for improvisation - and all at a very reasonable cost. Five stars. Six if they were available

    positive review  Cameron is both a very competent Captain and ship technician. He is a great team leader and easy to work with on all projects. I can also recommend his wisdom and skill in surveying vessels and fitting all forms of electronic equipment including chart plotters and AIS transponders.
