*Popeye Marine Group Marine Surveys, Insurance Surveys, and Boat Damage Inspections do not include an internal inspection of Engines, Generators, Gears, Pumps or other mechanical aspects of a vessel. We recommend further inspection for these items to be completed by a Certified Marine Mechanic. Popeye Marine Group does not represent itself or its entities as Certified Marine Mechanics for any purpose of any type of Marine Survey.

Pre-Purchase Inspection

This is the most comprehensive type of inspection, and is strongly advised when purchasing a new or used vessel. Condition and overall operation of the vessel should be examined. This covers structural integrity, electrical systems, the propulsion system, the fuel system, other machinery, navigation equipment, miscellaneous on-board systems, cosmetic appearance, electronics, and overall maintenance as well as an out-of-water inspection. Sea Trials can be added as a part of your inspection.

Insurance Survey

This inspection is performed so that the insurance company can determine whether or not the vessel is an acceptable risk. They are interested in structural integrity and safety for its intended use. Most insurance companies require a survey on older boats. They will also want to know the vessel's fair market value.

Damage Investigation

The surveyor can be retained by an insurance company to determine the cause of a loss and determine the extent of loss related damage and may be asked to recommend repairs, review estimates, and determine the pre-loss value of a vessel.  A vessel owner can retain a surveyor for the same purposes, but for the owner's behalf.

Repair Oversight

When you need someone who knows and understands the repair practices in the marine industry to oversee the repair/refit of your vessel to make sure everything is done properly.
