I've never seen one, but I'm guessing that is an insurance survey, not a pre-purchase survey which would be far more detailed.

It says on the front page that it is a Condition and Valuation Survey which should include a complete description of every system on the vessel and a detailed list of issues.

He said in the survey that none of the systems or the engine was operated. I'm guessing it was never put in the water. A full pre-purchase survey has to be done both in and out of the water. My survey from this guy was way more intensive. He did in and out of the water and sea trial.

Hence my suggestion that there must be many pages missing. As the surveyor is also a SAMS member it should be noted that the pages are not numbered as required by SAMS. Looks like someone may have edited this pretty heavily before posting it.

On the next rainy, cool night when you have nothing else to do you may find the Sample Marine Survey Reports on my website somewhat entertaining.

Not saying that there aren't pages missing, but how can you have a full survey when the boat isn't even put in the water or any systems are operated including the engine.

There are hundreds of items to be checked and reported on before running anything or testing anything in water. In fact 90% of the inspection is done under those conditions.

Old salt friend of mine working in boat yards and doing boat deliveries all his life calls them Goofstars....not a boat you want to buy for next to nothing without seeing it.

Re: 1975 Gulfstar 50 hull material??

The problem of buying a boat unseen is that there may be one or more things that make it not feasible or worth repairing. If that is the case you are then responsible to berth, moor or store the boat until you figure out how to dispose of it. If you just anchor it out and it blows up on the beach you will be responsible for the clean up and disposal of the boat.

In the case of a 50 foot boat you are not just risking the cost of the "great deal price" up front, you might be on the hook for 10s of thousands of disposal costs later.
