Boat Insurance Inspection in Fort Lauderdale

In South Florida, when any adult is posed the question of which would be the one outdoor toy they would like to have, the clear majority of them will quickly answer a boat. Most wouldn’t even to pause for a full minute. The beaches and the water are the main reasons people live here. Of course, the watersports are a definite plus. Although so many people want to own boats, few of them do the research to learn exactly what is entails before they take the plunge into ownership. Unfortunately for them, first-time buyers usually see a boat parked in a driveway with a for sale sign on it, or see one offered for sale at a low price on Craigslist or Facebook. They could have been on vessels plenty of times, but they simply aren’t qualified to judge if the boat is good or not. Therefore, experienced owners always have the vessel inspected by a marine survey professional before deciding whether or not to make the purchase. The survey can also be used as bargaining chip so that you can make sure that you’re paying a fair price. Simex Marine Surveyors offers more than forty years of experience and will ensure you don’t spend a bunch of money on a boat that’s really an anchor.

Fort Lauderdale Inspection Surveys for Vessel Insurance

Another thing that new vessel owners are oblivious to is the requirement of insurance. Just like cars, boats are required by law to carry insurance. The only difference is that the insurance companies require a marine insurance inspection before they will issue a policy for coverage. This inspection is very detailed and can only be performed by a certified surveyor. You can’t just go to the local marine repair facility for such a survey. It would not be accepted by your potential carrier. Simex Marine Surveyors provide certified insurance inspections throughout South Florida.

"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"
