So someone is interested in buying your boat. Marine surveyor Anthony Gates itemises how to prepare it for the final survey.
When you decide to sell your yacht your preparation for a prepurchase survey should start even before you list the boat for sale. Ideally, you should start preparing your vessel for sale the day you buy it by ensuring that it is well maintained. Hopefully you maintained a service log over the years, with receipts to demonstrate your proactive approach to general and preventative maintenance. Many surveying companies can conduct a general condition assessment (GCA) of your vessel. The GCA report can then be provided to potential buyers as an independent overview as to the condition of the vessel, increasing a buyer’s confidence to enter into an initial conditional agreement for purchase.
