Circumstances of the Survey The yacht was made available for survey while on the trailer at the yard. The next day the yacht was made available for sea trial and in water inspection at Glyfada No. 4 marina. Present during the survey was the client. The yacht was imported from the USA to Greece for sale. The yacht had post construction assessment by IMCI for the European Recreational Craft Directive prior to importation. Since the yacht is now to be exported from the EU this compliance is not necessary but is a benefit for future sale back to the EU if that occurs.

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 4.

The HIN number US-NTL000000000 indicates a 0000 model built in Month/00 and considering the build date it is likely the yacht was delivered in 0000 however no documentation was provided that would confirm this. The yacht is declared to be designed in accordance with the NMMA (National Marine Manufacturers Association) rules.

Hull below Waterline The hull below waterline was visually inspected and found fair, without stress crazing and without damages. There were no osmosis blisters. Hammer sounding was used to detect for delamination and voids and there was found only minor delamination at the port side about midships just above the hard chine. This was to extent 15cm x 10cm. There was no stress crazing in way therefore no indication of a minor collision and therefore it may be from build. It does not require repair. The hull was therefore considered to be structurally sound.

Hull surfaces fair and without cracks or blisters

No damages at bow

Topsides Topsides gelcoat remained a good white and was fair and without stress crazing. Topsides trim line was with minor chips and requires repainting. There was a minor scrape on the starboard topsides which requires gelcoat repair.

Moisture Readings Moisture Readings were taken with a Sovereign Quantum Marine meter. Moisture readings do not measure moisture content but are based on a relative scale which is relevant only to this specific model of meter. Moisture readings were as follows : Meter Sovereign Quantum Marine Scale A Relative Scale 0-100 Shallow Mode Deep Mode

Underwater Hull 14-15

Topsides

Deck

14-16

14-15

11-19

11-19 (30)

11-13

Moisture readings on the underwater hull were very good and dry. Topsides readings were generally dry with an increase towards the port stern but which remains below high level. This may be due to the position of the boat in relation to the sun while drying. The deck was also found dry. The readings indicate that moisture related defects are not likely to occur. 14.

Cockpit The cockpit was generally in good order. At the helm area there was good visibility and sufficient handholds. The windscreen was intact along with the framing.

Conclusion There was no structural defect found. The yacht was in a general good condition, build quality and outfitting were to a high standard. Various auxiliary equipment was not working and this can be easily corrected as part of the commissioning process. Various minor maintenance items, wear and tear were also noted. The yacht was proven to be seaworthy and generally operational on sea trial, except that the autopilot was not fully operational.

GRADY WHITE 330 EXPRESS

The hoses noted to be in poor condition require replacement and especially the ones connected to below waterline through hull valves are to be attended to before the boat is launched by the new owner as these could eventually cause sinking. The cockpit drain hoses are also important. Provided the above noted recommendations are carried out, the yacht should not pose more than a normal insurance risk.
