Circumstances of the Survey The yacht was made available for survey while moored stern fast at the marina. A short sea trial under engine was made off the marina and then the yacht was hauled for inspection by crane and then relaunched.

3.

General 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

Hull below Waterline The hull below waterline was hammer sounded and no significant delamination or voids were found. The hull surfaces were fair. There were no osmosis blisters seen. Scraping the antifouling in four areas revealed a white pigmented gelcoat that was suitably hard and without visible defect. There was no preventative osmosis treatment applied but this is of no concern.

Sea Trial A short sea trial was made under motor off the marina. The engines started first time and were checked up to 2800rpm which produced 8.4knots. The exhausts were clean and cooling water flow was good. There was no abnormal sounds or vibration during operation. The steering operated smoothly and the autopilot was checked working. The sea trial was concluded with an opinion that the yacht was generally in good operation.
