It goes without saying that a Yacht is a massive purchase, so it’s not something you want to take on lightly. A Yacht Pre Purchase Survey will confirm the structural condition of the hull and the hull to keel attachment.
During a Yacht Pre Purchase survey all load bearing fittings and compression points are inspected to ensure the hull is withstanding the high loads, which can be exerted whilst sailing. All normal engineering and systems inspections are also carried out.
In most cases, the only way to check the condition of a Yacht fully before you buy is to have a Pre Purchase Survey carried out. The results will help you to determine whether you should go ahead with the purchase, renegotiate, or back out altogether!
