General Standard Limitations of Survey The survey was limited to a non-destructive inspection. Unexposed parts of the yacht were not inspected unless specifically commented upon. Inaccessible parts of the yacht were not inspected. It is possible that dismantling or destructive testing may reveal other defects not possible to be noted by the surveyor. Unless an item was specifically commented upon it should be considered that the item was not inspected. If an item was operated or operation witnessed it will be noted as such in the report, any other items should be considered as untested. This report is intended to be used by the named client in the normal manner concerning the type of survey performed as stated on the first page of the report. The report may additionally be used by insurers or financiers for the purpose of insuring or financing the yacht. The report may be used by the yacht’s flag to confirm safety. The report should not be relied upon for any other purpose by any other party and no liability is undertaken to such party. The report concerns condition of the yacht at time of survey and future condition cannot be anticipated. Dismantling of machinery may reveal a different condition than was possible to determine within the constraints of a typical inspection circumstances. General periodic servicing requirements are not mentioned in the report. It is always recommended to have any machinery inspected and serviced by a specialist engineer. If a Sailing Yacht, the rigging was inspected from deck level only if mast not down. This is for safety reasons. For further inspection of any rigging, inspection by rigger is required. Inspection at deck level cannot find all defects but is satisfactory to make a general assessment. The survey work was performed in accordance with standard terms and conditions which are available at the following link : http://www.walshsurveyor.com/terms.pdf

Overview

Hull below Waterline Methods of Inspection Used : Visual Inspection, Hammer Sounding, Scraping Antifouling

Hull below waterline found fair. The previous coat of antifouling generally well adhered. No cracks at spray rails. No damages or previous poor repairs. Hammer sounding found no delamination. Forward of the stern tube exits on both sides there are multiple blisters. Several released chemical smelling fluid. Scraping found that the hull below waterline was previously treated with an epoxy and then with epoxy fairing. It seems to be an osmosis treatment but further information is not known including whether the gelcoat was removed prior to the epoxy which is possible. The blisters are not an osmosis but are related to the epoxy filler and are located in the epoxy filler not inside the hard epoxy or laminate. It is not unusual for these to occur and I have seen it before with epoxy filler. They can be ground out individually and filled with epoxy filler. The area around the stern tubes is quite common for moisture related defects to occur.

Suggestion : Blisters in way of stern tubes on exterior hull to be ground out and filled with epoxy filler. 9.

Moisture Readings Moisture readings on the underwater hull were not taken as representative readings are not possible during a survey lift inspection as the antifouling retains moisture for some hours. Moisture readings are also not possible on epoxy filler.

10.

Topsides Methods of Inspection Used : Visual Inspection

Topsides gelcoat found without major defect. No damages. Stern platform also with no damages. Minor rubber pieces of rubbing strake missing. Minor scratch on port topsides near aft. Exhausts are typical light fibreglass mouldings screwed to the hull sides. The port side one was with some minor corrosion staining at a screw and there were numerous areas of parallel crazing to a minor extent probably from stress from straps when lifting the boat. The exhausts seem to have been painted and there was a 10cm diameter bubble on top of the port exhaust likely from moisture getting under the paint. These are very minor items. The exhausts were otherwise secure and intact.

Interior side of hull plating without cracks

Deck Moulding Methods of Inspection Used : Visual Inspection, Walking heavily on deck.

Wooden decking secured with sealant rather than screws. Teak type wood of 1mm veneer on plywood. The plywood is susceptible to rot if the caulking is not maintained in good condition. This is the cheapest type of deck. Various recaulking is required at the bow as it is deteriorated and separating from the seams. At least 2 planks need replacing due to lifting. Various recaulking is also required at side deck port side. The starboard side was in better condition. Whilst hammer sounding is not possible due to the decking in way there was no indication of structural problem with the deck as it did not deflect or make cracking sounds underfoot.

Cathodic Protection Methods of Inspection Used : Visual Inspection

Anodes suitable for further use. No abnormal wastages seen or abnormal activity such as pitting close to anodes. The shaft anodes at least will require changing by diver if the boat is staying afloat for more months. The further wastage cannot be anticipated as it depends also on galvanic/current leakage issues at the specific marina where the boat will be kept. However they are wasted in way of the securing and will detach in the near future. The bow thruster anodes were suitable for further use with only slight wastage

Shaft anodes significantly wasted

Check wastage in way of securing bolts which is concerning

Hull anodes minor wastage

Flaps anodes also suitable for further use

Suggestion : Take care of shaft anodes wastage.

Engines Methods of Inspection Used : Visual Inspection, Running Condition Witnessing, Engineer attendance and endoscopic examination of cylinders at random one per bank under my direction.

2 x MAN D2842 LYE 12cyl v configuration with turbocharger on each bank each producing 746kW. Minor oil leaks were noted on the engines and also from the starboard engine oil cooler. Endoscopic examination of a sample of cylinders was performed by mechanics under my direction. The sampling was one cylinder per bank for each engine. The results were positive therefore further examination was unnecessary. The endoscopic examination required removal of injectors for access and at least one injector was found dirty. Some gaskets were seen to have been replaced, others had not been replaced. Minor leaks were found but did not persist on sea trial. The engines have not been rebuilt and usually would have been due to age but have been attended to periodically by the Aktipis workshop which is well known. The engine hours are low. The mechanics specified repairs which included injectors cleaning, intercoolers and coolers cleaning, replace oil cooler gaskets along with general periodic servicing (filters, belts, oil, coolant).

13002/AI

The engines running condition was generally normal. The port engine had slightly higher temperature readings during sea trial taken with infra red thermometer but these were not of any concern and may be lower after cleaning of the intercooler and cooler. Engine servicing was not neglected but was obviously done to a reduced budget. External condition was satisfactory except for the minor oil leaks. Coatings were intact. Two cylinder heads were found on board. Certainly one was replaced on the starboard engine. Engine hours were relatively the same for both engines. Exhausts were lagged in an amateur manner with tape over the existing lagging. To be done properly. Port Engine

Accommodation General Methods of Inspection Used : Visual Inspection

The accommodation was generally in order. Furnishings were without significant damages. Minor wet damages were expected in way of windows and doors but nothing major was found. Master cabin has a recent leak which is expected to be from the flybridge morse cables entry although this is not certain. It is likely not from the day head as the distance is further. The leak has stained the alacantra lining of two ceiling panels. Further inspection can be made when the ceiling panels are removed. It was not possible to remove them during the survey as a carpenter was required. Starboard aft side curtain rail of the saloon detached easily when pulled.

Conclusion The yacht was said to have last typical drydocking in 2011 and was laid up. The general condition was good but there had been some neglect at the deck caulking, various flexible hoses in the engine room were dangerous, various gate valves with handles corroded, bilge submersible pump/float switch securing etc. Engine servicing was not neglected but costs had been minimised.

It was only this year when GRP yachts in this size range were available after strong price negotiations for the previous prices of yachts with very expensive to maintain hull materials such as steel or even worse wood. Certainly it remains an excellent buyers market for those with funds available. This is due to the world economic conditions. The future market conditions cannot be known but it would be reasonable to expect the yacht to sell again later for similar price provided the condition is maintained reasonably well and everything is still working. This is because the yacht has undergone most of the depreciation to what is believed to be a stable price level. Of course any new installations would be expected to make the yacht sell easier or to perhaps increase the value by something like only 10% of their value. Therefore any major new items would be best to be removable if the yacht is to be sold again. With some good initial expenditure for servicing and machinery refurbishment, serious problems are likely to be avoided in that respect. There was no structural problem found and the yacht was proven to be generally operational on sea trial. Provided the recommendations are carried out the yacht should not pose more than a normal insurance risk.
