Surveyor and Yard

I'm looking for a couple of recomendations. We pulled the trigger on a new (to us) boat. We've put the money down and have the contract set.

Now we need to get it pulled and surveyed. We're looking to do this in southern New England: Cape Cod, RI or CONN.

Any Suggestions on a yard that can haul a 43' Cat with a 25' Beam?

Also looking for suggestions on a surveyor.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know if they'd do it (they do mostly megayacht work), but Derecktor Shipyards has a location in Bridgeport CT that has a 600-ton travelift - supposedly the largest in the US. They can handle a 65' beam. Website is at Derecktor Shipyards - Yachts and Commercial Vessels: New Construction, Repair and Refit

You could try Newport Shipyard in Newport, RI. I thought New England Boatworks in Portsmouth, RI would be able to but their website says max beam is 20'6". They may be able to point you in the right direction though.

You can also try Pilots Point in Westbrook CT. I'm pretty sure they can handle a 25' beam.

Newport RI

Hello,

My last boat was hauled at Newport Shipyard. They have some VERY large boats there, I bet they could handle yours.

They were expensive, but did a very nice job hauling my little O'day 35.

For a survey, you could call Barnaby Blatch at Atlantic Marine Surveys:

Atlantic Marine Survey, Mystic, Connecticut, USA - Barnaby Blatch SAMS® AMS®

He did my boat and I was very happy with him.

Good luck,
Barry

I hate to crash in on someone else's thread, but I'm actually looking for a surveyor on Cape Cod. Does anyone have any personal experience with any surveyor or group they could share with me? I have been searching this forum and others for recommendations to no avail.

Many thanks!

For surveyor advice, see this thread:
http://www.sailnet.com/forums/buying...idence-ri.html

Also Klopmann from Marblehead Jonathan K Klopman Marine Surveyor .

Note that Klopman and Knowles are likely to be very busy and you may need to book for three weeks out, and they may cost more than other names who can show next week. The key recommendation for a surveyor are that he/she is very busy and can afford to charge more than the others...
