Our principal surveyor, Mr. Ricardo Castroviejo has more than 15 years of experience working on motor yacht electrical & electronic systems and has performed several electrical and corrosion surveys for domestic and european yachts. Surveyors should provide you with professionally prepared report that can be accepted by your bank and/or insurance company. You should talk with prospective surveyors and ask some basic questions like “What does the survey include, and what type of reporting format is used?” – “Do they use ABYC (American Boat and Yacht Council), NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), and USCG (United States Coast Guard) standards in their surveys?” – “How long will the inspection take?” – A thorough inspection will not be rushed, it will depend on the type of survey required, and based on size, equipment, and onboard systems. There may be additional services available such as engine surveys, oil analysis, galvanic and stray current corrosion testing, ultrasonic testing, moisture testing, as well as other non-destructive tests. Mr. Castroviejo has an ABYC Master with certifications in Elelctrical, Corrosion and Marine Systems (American Boat and Yacht Council) new-logo
