​At times a surveyor will recommend a third party expert to inspect damage to recommend how to repair some damage. 

Some examples of experts that are usually needed:

​Fire investigation

​Some types of mechanical issues

​Marine electrical problems

​A Marine Damage Survey evaluates how much damage a vessel has. The survey presents information on what caused the damage, recommendations on how to repair and the price of such repairs.  Depending on the damage, the vessel may require minor work or sometimes it may not be salvageable. 

Some examples of damage investigations are:


Boat trailer accidents

​Fuel tank leaks


​Weather damage

Mechanical problems

​Electrical issues

​Fire damage
