COVID-19 Statement : We are open and operating. However to work within the government social distancing guidelines we will be working alone. This means that you will not be able to come onto to the boat to observe the survey for both your and our safety. To reduce the impact of this on you, we have added the ability to undertake a video conference call to go through the findings once the report is ready to help you understand the issues found. We can also use short video calling/FaceTime during the survey if serious defects are discovered. You may attend when the boat is out of the water as long as you keep an appropriate distance.
Maple Marine are independent yacht surveyors covering surveys of both coastal and inland waterways vessels worldwide.
We have a reputation for performing thorough surveys. We spend as long as is needed and don’t skimp on the time we spend looking at the boat.
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 things as well as the defects, giving a rounded assessment of the boat. We do not just present a list of defects.
“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, Berkshire.
We 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.
Before we send you the report we will aim to call you to go through our findings in order to give you a good understanding of the issues and recommendations before you get the report to read. In this way you can ask for clarification and gain a full understanding of what is behind each of the recommendations.
Our aim is to provide you with a clear understanding of the condition of the vessel so you can make your decisions with confidence.
