questions about surveys

I'm hoping to learn a bit more about surveys. For example:

1. I assume that you get a written report. Does anyone have an example of one that I could actually read. I'm curious how much detail there is.

2. Does the surveyor actually suggest a value or is it simply "information" for you to consume.

3. If one were considering the purchase of a new boat (i.e. a boat that a dealer bought on spec as opposed to a boat that you had ordered) would you get a survey done?

Note that my main point of comparison is the report that most/all homeowners get when purchasing a house. In my experience they're only marginally useful but you sort of have to get one just in case they find something really important.

Also, what is the typical price one should expect to pay for a survey.

Thanks!
