Ship Survey in Singapore

There are many reasons to conduct a ship survey in Singapore, including when purchasing a used vessel. A certificate of survey indicates that the vessel has been surveyed and meets the applicable standards for construction, stability, and safety equipment. This is not typically required for new vessels, but many lenders will not finance the purchase of a used boat unless it has been surveyed, making it an essential service.

Surveys are also useful in pointing out flaws in a used boat that would only be visible to a professional. They can also determine the vessel’s actual value by pointing out items that require repair or replacement.
