$15 to $20 per foot length of boat plus 50 per mile there and back. Some also have a minimum charge for boats under 25 ft.

May vary by area but around here I think rates start about $12-14/foot for an average surveyor, the best may want $100/hour with an 8 hour minimum. The best are worth every penny they charge even if you have to wait three weeks toi get on the schedule.

Certified...in several regards...

Deltaville, VA and the lower Chesapeake Bay is $14 per foot for a single engine sailboat, just finished last Thursday and settled Monday.

Just don't do without one.

Just dont do without a GOOD one. I have had surveys that were total BS because the surveyer either was too ignorant or too lazy to do a good job. Just like any service industry, a good technician/consultant is worth every penny he charges. They will save you money in the long run. Just do your homework and make sure you get a qualified surveyor with references.

Recent survey:

August 2nd, 2008
34 foot sailboat
$748.00 (34 feet at $22.00 a foot)
And worth every cent!

Knock off the $500.00 I got dropped from the price and the survey cost me $248.00

And I know the boat inside and out.
