Cameron Springthorpe

Location / Availability

We have just moved to Cowes from where I will cover the Solent and most of the South coast, I'm more than happy to hop on a ferry, so just give me a call to discuss your survey requirements.

I am able to survey private yachts and commercial vessels for pre-purchase, insurance or valuation purposes.

Background / Experience

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 both Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance to survey private or commercial vessels up to 30mtrs LOA.

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!


(These are a few of the vessels I have worked on.)
