Ship, Yacht & Cargo Surveyors
Our team of in-house ship, yacht and cargo surveyors consists of highly competent and accredited individuals who have been involved with marine surveys for over 20 years and have carried out surveys throughout the world including Europe, North America, Asia and Africa. They have an extensive experience that stretches from sea to shore and are ready to assist with all technical requirements related to marine and cargo surveys within a short notice.
The International Group of P&I Clubs and prominent underwriters, flag state administrations, shipowners and yacht owners have acknowledged that the surveys performed by our surveyors meet the strictest standards in the marine industry.
Testament to this is the fact that the company is among four non-classification societies in the world to be approved for the inspection of reefer vessels along with prestigious IACS member societies such as DNV GL, Lloyd's Register, Bureau Veritas and ClassNK.

Ultrasonic Hatch Cover Testing
Hatch cover inspectors of the company are equipped with type approved ultrasonic equipment by IACS member societies which enables them to perform ultrasonic hatch cover tightness tests and to issue corresponding certificates.
Ultrasonic testing is undertaken either due to a cargo loss prevention initiative or as a result of a cargo claim investigation. Leaking hatch covers may adversely affect not only a ship's insurance but also its Classification Society and Flag State Administration status.
Hull & Fittings Moisture Testing
The company performs non-destructive moisture tests on hulls made out of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) and wood. It also performs moisture tests on fittings, and leak detection in decks and bulkheads.
Testing is performed using electronic moisture meters which are specifically designed for the marine industry and which have proven in scientific comparison studies to be the most powerful equipment on the market.
Our safe moisture testing methods on Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) and wooden hulls can detect excess moisture at an early stage thereby saving boat and yacht owners considerable amount of money by avoiding potential expenses related to hull blistering or decaying.
