Certified Boat Appraisals
A boat appraisal survey inspection or boat valuation is similar to an insurance condition and valuation survey, but with a slightly abbreviated report. The vessel’s condition needs to be clearly defined to provide an accurate valuation. The report will identify valuation methodology, assumptions as to the operating condition of machinery and other systems, as well as any limitations of inspection.
An appraisal survey may be conducted for a number of reasons, including:
- Estate settlements
- Divorce settlements
- Donation to a charity
- Boat damage or loss
- Boat condition evaluations
- Selling or purchasing a vessel
- Applying for financing to purchase a boat
