Why would you have a pre purchase survey done by me?

Let me introduce myself to you. Your are talking to an enthousiastic surveyer that has been on the water from his early youth, starting with a rowing boat and Optimist sailing dinghy.

Since march 2000 I love doing yacht and boat pre purchase surveys (Fibreglass/GRP, Steel, Aluminum, Wood).

To really concentrate on these prepurchase surveys I decided from the beginning not to engage in new constructions and refit, damage assessment for insurance companies, deliveries etc.

Before I started surveying I spent 15 years just in purchase, repair and selling of yachts and boats. Rest assured that in that time frame you get trained and take care not to buy a little or big desaster!

  • Prepurchase survey

    During a prepurchase survey I survey the condition of the yacht or boat you are planning to buy or have bought pending survey.

  • Corrosion survey

    Due to my background (Bsc. Metallurgy/Materials) this is my oyster.
    In the Netherlands I’m the only yachtsurveyor with this background,

  • Theo van Rijswijk

    Being in yachting since age 15, I have been forever fascinated/spoiled by it.
    Since the last 13 eleven years I have been fully specialised in prepurchase surveys only
