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!
During a prepurchase survey I survey the condition of the yacht or boat you are planning to buy or have bought pending survey.
Due to my background (Bsc. Metallurgy/Materials) this is my oyster.
In the Netherlands I’m the only yachtsurveyor with this background,
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
