Yacht Surveys in Essex - Joe Kershaw  Joe Kershaw - Yacht Surveys Essex

Independant Surveyor
I am an independant surveyor and am not retained or tied to any yacht brokers or agents.

Pre Purchase Surveys
A pre purchase condition survey is an essential item to consider when buying any vessel. A thorough inspection covers over three hundred points and can prevent unforeseen problems occurring later and protect your investment from turning into a financial disaster.

Insurance Surveys
Most insurance companies require surveys on craft over ten years old and there after every five years. The insurance survey takes the form of a full condition survey and only omits none safety related items.

Damage surveys
After an accident it is often necessary for a survey to ascertain the extent of any damage caused and what if any repairs are necessary, and possibly help identify the cause of such damage.

With an engineering background and a practical approach to boat ownership I have gathered many years experience in building, repairing and maintaining boats, ranging from small sailing boats to large yachts and canal narrow boats in wood, GRP and steel.

Joe Kershaw - Yacht Surveyor Essex - Suffolk

I trained as a yacht surveyor at the International Boat Building College in Lowestoft Suffolk, qualifying in FRP steel and wooden boats. For FRP boats I use the latest capacitance type Sovereign Quantum moisture meter especially developed for marine use.  I have experience in all methods of wooden boat construction, traditional and modern.

Rates are variable for Pre Purchase Surveys. I work throughout the UK and do not charge for travel within Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, London and Kent

I am an affiliate member of the Yacht Designers and Surveyors Association (2010), and a member of BMSE (British Marine Surveyors Europe) and I work to the guidelines, terms and conditions set out by the Yacht Designers and Surveyors Association.
I have professional indemnity and liability insurance, as required by the Yacht Designers and Surveyors Association.
