Boat inspections and surveys

From launches, yachts to trailer boats Laver Marine Surveys will provide you with an indepth inspection and comprehensive report of the condition of the boat you wish to buy, insure or finance.

The purpose of a boat survey is to report on the overall condition of a vessel and search for defects that would seriously affect the safety and or value of a vessel; such as delaminating, water ingress, osmosis, rot, corrosion and fatigue etc.  We also seek to compliment the vessel's good points.

We respect that there are the interests of both the buyer and the seller to be mindful of, but ultimately it is the integrity of our surveys and the safety of those who would be aboard the boat that are of the upmost importance. Accordingly, Laver Marine Ltd. strives to provide an unbiased factual report of a vessel as we find it on the day of survey.

Laver Marine Ltd. carries professional indemnity insurance cover with underwriters Lloyds of London and public liability with Lumley.


We travel all over New Zealand

Surveying a boat


A good marine surveyor will approach each vessel from a fresh and fair perspective. 


Often we inspect boats that appear in poor cosmetic condition but are found to be structurally sound. 


Conversely boats that appear in very good condition at first glance may be in need of expensive repairs.


The key is reporting ones findings in a balanced fashion. 


Whatever the case, Laver Marine will endeavour to be thorough with their investigations and seek to gain as much information on the boat as is reasonably possible.
