Re: What to expect from a survey

Basically, there's two kinds of surveys, an insurance survey and a more detailed, pre-purchase survey. I'm guessing an insurance survey will be in the $12-16 per foot range and because a pre-purchase survey is more intensive and time consuming, it will be in the $15-24 per foot range. Usually, location and experience are the driving factors in price. The more experienced surveys with good reputations will command top dollar especially, if they are in the high rent areas of boating.

Totally agree you should be there for every step of the survey and the surveyor should be part of the sea trial.
