Why Use Vessel Check

Vessel check combines years of experience in the marine industry to successfully manage the pre purchasing and insurance processes involved with buying and owning a boat

Electronic Report

We use an electronic reporting system which greatly simplifies the survey results making them easy to read and understand. Our report uses a traffic light system and automatically provides you with a list of things we think need attending. Best of all, our report is available to you before we leave the inspection site

Fully Insured

Using our qualifications and industry experience we are able to obtain insurance for our business. Without these formal qualifications the appropriate level of insurance is not possible.

Industry Experience

We have spent 20 years in the industry as a broker and in recent years a surveyor. So we have participated in hundreds of marine surveys and boats sales and understand fully what is required in managing all interested parties in this process.


"Our initial pre purchase report listed a number of items that were defective but Matt was able to use his experience in the industry to sit down with the broker and work through the list to eventually make us feel comfortable about purchasing the boat. Our expectations were for a perfect boat but the boat was over 10 years old and Matts professionalism in dealing with these situations over many years in the industry made us realise that our expectations were unrealistic. We love our boat now and couldn’t be happier"

"We engaged Vessel Check to conduct a pre purchase survey for us on a vessel we thought was sound. The team at vessel check identified a number of issues which made it difficult for us to proceed and had we not engaged their services we may well have had to carry out expensive repairs."
"Vessel check carried out a pre purchase inspection on a boat we looked at buying. There were a number of issues due to the age of the vessel but Matt was able to quantify those and work through them to ensure we were fully informed and educated before making our final decision. We would thoroughly recommend a survey before buying any boat."

"Matt and his team quickly facilitated a valuation on our vessel to enable the insurance company to continue with cover"
