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.
The following list represents some of the surveys that the company performs in Cyprus, Montenegro and beyond:
• P&I pre-entry surveys

Our impartial survey reports consist of actual findings at the time of survey and are accompanied with test reports (if applicable) and electronic photo albums which include a comprehensive photographic record of the items inspected and found to have irregularities.
The amount of time necessary to complete a survey and to prepare the supporting documentation depends on the scope of the survey, the condition of the subject being inspected as well as access to it among other factors.
The company is equipped with ultrasonic equipment certified for hatch testing by IACS member societies which enables the company to perform watertight integrity tests on hatch covers and to issue corresponding certificates.
Other non-destructive tests that the company performs are moisture tests on the hulls and fittings of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) and wooden boats and yachts. 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.
