Damage Assessment

Focused Inspection Of Damage

Damage Assessment Survey

Most commonly, a Damage Survey entails a very focused inspection of damage or an emerging defect; this type of survey does not inspect areas of a vessel that have not been subject to damage.

Yacht Survey Group will be working either on behalf of the vessel’s owner or on behalf of the insurance company commissioning the survey following a claim.

The aim of the Damage Survey is to identify the full extent of the damage and its probable cause, give recommendations and options for repair, and an estimated guide of the costs of the repair. After completion of the survey, it may be that we are also required to independently and impartially monitor and report on the repair work.

Damage Survey FAQ

Do I have to prepare the yacht before the damage survey is carried out?

If the survey is for an insurance claim, it is important to speak to your insurers directly. They will give you instructions that will usually involve making every attempt to prevent further damage. It is important that we are notified as soon as possible after the damage so we can attend quickly. Keep all damaged items and gear if you wish to make a claim.

Can you help find repairers after the damage survey?

If you are making an insurance claim, always talk to your insurers directly. We can help find repairers, although we are not affiliated with any specific repair company; it is important for us to remain independent.

Will you survey the yacht after the repairs have been completed?

We can do but this is not part of the initial damage survey so there would be additional costs.
