Re: Working with sellers who refuse a pending survey contract


I don’t see anything that states the ‘owner’ won’t allow a survey. Only that that the owner won’t sign a contract. You can hire a surveyor and get the survey done and the owner could sell the boat before you get to closing. That’s something your friend might be willing to risk or perhaps not. Personally i would tell my surveyor i need to get a go / no go decision by the end of the survey. The complete report can come later but then you can make an offer at the end of the survey

Lastly i see so many comments about insurance and surveys. I have owned 3 boats withl Allstate insurance. I have never been asked for a survey. I even had a boat damaged in a hurricane. Allstate sent me a check and just wanted to see the bill for the repairs
