New Build Supervision  

The supervision of the building of a new boat tends to be a bespoke service and can range from regular weekly inspections with or without the purchaser or commissioner present to a one off pre-delivery survey. Some clients choose to receive progress updates from us especially when they are based overseas.

It often reduces the chances of conflict if a surveyor is involved from as early in the build as is possible as this can lead to a need for fewer scheduled visits thus reduce costs. The client frequently benefits from a situation where a clear working understanding has been achieved between the boat builder and the surveyor at an early stage. However instructions have been accepted to supervise the building of a craft after its construction has begun and on occasions to successfully resolve disputes and differences between boat builders and boat buyers.

Clients have frequently benefited from the ability to explore with unbiased view, the many aspects of their boat the materials and equipment specification, layout options and unique design characteristics. In turn, the boatbuilders often receive the customerís suggestions more positively when it is clear that it has been fully explored before being suggested.

There is a requirement for new craft to comply with a perplexing panacea of legislation and build standards which include Marine Coastguard Agency (MCA) [Link to MCA] coding regulations, to the Recreational Craft Directive [Link to RCD] 94/25/EC and 2003/44/EC and The Boat Safety Scheme [Link to BSS]

Some new vessels require the involvement of a Notified Body as part of their assessment and we have provided this contact to varying levels depending upon the needs of various clients.
