Calypso Breeze Marine Surveying, Inc Is On Watch And Ready At The Helm

Purchasing a new boat be very exciting….and very intimidating because so much is involved. The most important part of your purchase is making sure you know the condition and value of the vessel. And the second most important part of boat ownership is being able to insure your new purchase. Marine Surveyors come from a variety of marine backgrounds and provide important information about the condition and value of vessels using USCG Regulations (Title 33 and 46, Code of Federal Regulations) and Law (Title 46, United States Code), American Boat and Yacht Council Standards ( ), and National Fire Protection Association Marine Pleasure Boat and Marine Standards ( . Is your head spinning yet?

Knowing the minimum standards and how a vessel rates using regulations and standards helps you get the most value for your money. A marine survey is also used to assess maintenance and repair needs, document compliance with insurance requirements, and assess damage to your vessel.
