Boat Insurance Surveyors in West Palm Beach

Every seasoned mariner knows that vessel insurance is required before the hull even touches the water. Unfortunately, all too many first-time boatowners are blindsided with this. Most assume that if it doesn’t drive on the roads, it doesn’t need insurance. Boats are no different than trucks, cars, and motorcycles when it comes to having an insurance policy. It’s even more shocking to novice owners that every insurance carrier requires an inspection before they will write a policy. This inspection cannot be performed by the mechanic at the local marine. It must be performed by a certified marine survey company or the insurance company will not accept the findings. The survey is quite detailed, and provides an in-depth report of the entire vessel, including all the systems. This report is then provided to the potential insurance company. Only after receiving the evaluation are they able to decide regarding coverage amounts and costs. The professional inspectors at Simex Marine Surveyors offer complete survey inspections for marine insurance carriers.

When buying a vessel, everyone wants to haggle to get the lowest possible purchase price, however; when getting an insurance policy for the boat, they want it to be insurance for the highest amount it can be valued at. It’s normal to want to see that you made an incredible deal that’s actually written down on paper. This is a validation of your negotiating skills. In all reality, the vessel simply cannot appraise higher than its true value. Therefore, the insurance companies insist upon certified professionals doing the inspection. Simex Marine Surveyors are certified to provide marine survey services for the purpose of gaining insurance coverage.

"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"
