The purpose of these surveys is principally to determine the extent of damage, other than fair wear and tear, which may have occurred to the ship between two dates, usually those of the commencement and termination of charter. Whilst the determination of damage is the principle purpose of the two requisite reports, one being at the “on hire” survey and the other at the “off hire” survey, there are often three other requirements, as follows:
- The checking of documents and certificates
- The establishment of quantities of fuel and stores on board
- Sometimes the establishment of the cleanliness of the cargo spaces
Our Marine surveyors have the necessary knowledge about ship to offer a service that will meet with the most demanding clients’ expectations.
