Accredited Yacht Surveyors in Fort Lauderdale

The importance of having an accredited marine surveyor nearby simply cannot be overstated. Most yacht owners find having one that they can trust and call on anytime they need some kind of marine assistance invaluable. Unfortunately, all too many novice boat owners fail to see the value in such services, and wind up shooting themselves in the foot financially. They’ll find a vessel advertised online, feel the urge, and shell out their hard-earned cash without even consider having someone evaluate it for them. This is the most common mistake that turns a lot of people away from the boating world. It’s a shame because a simple yacht pre-purchase evaluation could have saved them a ton of money, and even more headaches. Such an evaluation is akin to having an auto shop check out a used car before making the purchase. It is extremely important for both vessels and vehicles. The professionals at Simex Marine Surveyors are completely accredited yacht surveyors in South Florida.

There is one thing that you can absolutely count on when it comes to each and every boat owners, and that is the fact that they value their vessels almost as much as they value their loved ones. A boat quickly becomes a beloved member of the family for most mariners. Vessels provide them with loads of fun out on the water, and the ability to spend quality time together with loved ones and cherished friends, without the interruptions of day to day life. They also teach people to work together to get things done. This is something that is generally forgotten about at home. You can also count on the concern and worry when something happens that causes damage to the boat. To a mariner, it’s the equivalent of seeing their children get hurt, but it’s the truth.

The surveyor is the only one who can evaluate the damages to the boat, and accurately detail them for the insurance carrier. Insurance companies will not accept any other form of documentation.

"A customer is the most important visitor. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption of our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider to our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so. -- Mahatma Gandhi"
