Working in the Marine Industry since 1988, and on small craft since 2007, our surveyor has been elected a fellow member of all of three major surveyor associations : Royal Institution of Naval Architects, Yacht Designers and Surveyors (YDSA), and the International Institution of Marine Surveying (IIMS). 

We can undertake small commercial vessel (Coding) surveys for the following certifying authorities :

  • RYA (Royal Yachting Association)
  • IIMS (International Institution of Marine Surveying)

Maple Marine is an independent yacht survey company with an international outlook.

We have a reputation for performing thorough surveys. 

Our role is to inspect the boat in an objective, fair and independent way, factually reporting on the condition of the boat.

We highlight both the good features as well as the defects, giving a rounded assessment of the boat as we find it.

“I really am very impressed with the quality, thoroughness, depth and professionalism of the survey you carried out on the boat last week.
There probably isn’t that much to do with boats with which we can ever feel that we have achieved great value but I truly feel in the case of your survey that on this occasion you have provided just that.”

Glenn Haley.

The aim is to report in a prompt manner, finishing and delivering the report the as quickly as practicable. We know that prompt receipt of the report is important to you so you can complete the purchase, be able to use your boat commercially, or have your boat repaired at the earliest opportunity.

“Very impressed with Martin his explaining of everything on the day was good and clear taking the time to explain the details and the process. The best part for me was that he rang up before the Survey was sent to explain the key findings. A very professional and knowledgeable person who I would recommend to everyone. Thanks Martin for making the process a pleasure”

Before we send you the report we normally talk to you in order to go through our findings so you have a good understanding of the issues and recommendations before you read the report. In this way you can ask for clarification and gain a full understanding of what is behind each of the findings.

Our aim is to provide you with a clear understanding of the condition of the vessel so you can make your decisions with confidence.
