Finding the Perfect Yacht Overseas: The Essential Step Before Making an Offer

Imagine this: After hours, days, or even weeks of research, you've finally stumbled upon the perfect yacht online. It's a beauty, nestled in the picturesque marina of Preveza, Greece. But there's a catch - you're in the USA, and the yacht is thousands of miles away. You're ready to make an offer, but how can you ensure that the yacht is in pristine condition as described? Enter the marine surveyor.

Hello, I am Steve Truss, a UK-qualified IIMS Yacht Surveyor with over 25 years of experience in the field. If you're considering a yacht purchase in Preveza, I'm here to guide you through the essential step before making an offer: a professional yacht inspection.

Why is a Marine Survey Important?

Buying a yacht is a significant investment, and the last thing you'd want is to discover hidden defects or damages after the purchase. A marine surveyor provides an impartial assessment of the yacht's condition, giving you peace of mind and vital information to make an informed decision.

What Can You Expect from the Survey?

When you hire me to inspect the yacht in Preveza, here's what you can anticipate:

  1. Thorough Inspection: From the yacht's hull to its internal systems, I will comprehensively assess every aspect, ensuring there are no hidden defects.

  2. Detailed Report: After the inspection, you will receive a detailed report highlighting the yacht's condition, its valuation, and any recommended repairs.

  3. Negotiation Leverage: The findings can be invaluable in negotiations. If there are any repair requirements, you can either request the seller to address them or renegotiate the price.

How to Proceed?

If you've found a yacht in Preveza and need a reliable marine surveyor, here's what you should do next:

  1. Contact Me: Reach out to me with details about the yacht you're interested in. I'll provide you with an initial consultation and an overview of the surveying process.

  2. Schedule the Survey: Once everything is clear, we'll fix a date and time for the survey. I'll coordinate with the seller or the local agent to ensure a seamless process.

  3. Review the Report: After the inspection, I'll provide you with the comprehensive report, which will be your key tool in deciding your next steps.

Purchasing a yacht overseas can be a daunting process, but with the right assistance, it becomes a lot smoother. Let my 25 years of experience in yacht surveying serve as your guide and assurance. With me, you can rest easy knowing that your dream yacht in Preveza is precisely what you've envisioned.
