In Anglo-Saxon countries the issue of a pre-purchase survey goes without saying wether a purchase is definite or merely considered. Even in German-speaking countries buyers, sellers and brokers are increasingly aware of the virtue of an independent assessment summing up the condition and value of the respective vehicle.
To issue pre-purchase surveys on vessels inland and overseas is one of my most common tasks. Every year I furnish about 15 - 20 reports of this type, mainly for individuals with buying interests.
In addition or as sole service I offer the preparation of a valuation, which on the basis of a thorough examination taking into account various factors, determines the value of the yacht.
Because of my additional experience as skipper I am able to offer expertise together with a vessel transfer. The transfer procedure can yet again deepen the valuation and if desired provide necessary data for a technical manual. Of course, the new owner is welcome on board ship if they wish to acquaint themselves to their new yacht.
Alarmed by a number of articles and numerous accounts customers very often ask for a pre-purchase survey focussing on the subject of osmosis. On the one hand of course, I provide all my long-standing experience with this issue, and also have at my disposal the latest, most efficient moisture measuring device that is available on the market. However, a serious-minded consulting must not spare to elucidate the customers about the limits of assessing existing osmosis or the risk of its future occurrence. If requested, I would be happy to give further details about the moisture analysis and it's interpretation.
It would be my pleasure to submit to you an individual offer.

Due to the current situation (March / April 2021), I may be affected by my foreign assignments. There are no restrictions whatsoever in Germany. In the Scandinavian countries and Italy I can currently fulfill all orders, in other European countries (especially Spain, Croatia, the Netherlands and France) the situation has to be assessed according to region and daily situation. In particular, the legal requirements for quarantine and PCR tests must be taken into account when planning.
