Located in the beautiful British Virgin Islands
Caribbean Marine Surveyors Ltd provides comprehensive, accurate marine surveys to assist businesses and individuals with their every need. Our professional vessel surveyors in the British Virgin Islands provide surveys for insurance purposes, cargo ships, purchasing and more. Our experts will help you acquire and maintain accurate records of every purchase and event that affect your vessel, whether you are operating a cargo ship, charter boat or a personal leisure craft.
Marine surveys are required when purchasing insurance for your craft, and they are required for several certifications when entering certain ports. A marine survey for insurance purposes will assess the entire vessel, including all exterior and interior components, electrical wiring and navigation mechanisms, masts, rigging and more. The survey will ensure that the vessel is compliant with all applicable rules and regulations, and highlight any areas that may be faulty. This guarantees that the vessel is seaworthy and also gives the vessel an accurate, insurable value. A purchase survey is similarly conducted, but takes place before you buy a vessel, and a phase-out survey completes a ship’s history as a charter vessel. If a storm occurs or your vessel has been vandalized, a damage survey will accurately assess damages to your vessel and assign monetary losses for insurance purposes. Tonnage surveys are measurements required for registration in many areas, including the British Virgin Islands as well as most UK ports, ports in Canada and others. Cargo surveys are conducted when obtaining insurance on items you are carrying, so you can be reimbursed if they are damaged.
