Of all the people involved in the power or sail boat purchase process, John Bond Marine Surveyor is the person working for you, providing objective information about your condition and value pre-purchase or insurance marine surveys.

My goals are to help the buyer of new or used boats screen out the good from the bad by identifying flaws and recommending repairs.

I have performed, buyer sight unseen, boat and yacht pre purchase marine surveys for clients from the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Bahamas, United States, British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, and Quebec to name a few. Between our phone conversations, emails and the content of my survey reports, the reader can visualize the vessel.

By way of definition, marine surveys are done to determine a boats condition, its safety, its value and is most times required by your insurance broker.

To be certain the marine surveyor you hire has the experience, ethics, and professionalism to properly represent your interests, be sure that he or she belongs to a professional organization. The Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors (SAMS®) has a rigorous continuing education process, the highest of standards and is the largest Marine Surveyor organization in the world.

Transport Canada TP 14673 Says "Over time, your boat may develop mechanical, electrical, structural or fuel system problems. Left unnoticed, they can result in loss of life and property. Make sure your boat is safe. Get it inspected by an "accredited marine surveyor or technician

"The Marine Surveyor recommended in his report that my engine ignition distributors be replaced as they are not ignition protected, he must be wrong, I put car ones in and they work fine "

Please read the Transport Canada PDF TP14477e about Ignition Protection.

Hi John,

Your attention to detail and very broad scope of knowledge and experience really helped take the mystery out of this particular boat buying experience. I'm glad that the survey did not really reveal any major roadblocks to continuing the purchase. Your thoroughness revealed a lot of minor things that should be dealt with in the form of preventative maintenance. It was great to be able to watch over your shoulder and be your helper as I learned a lot about the boat from this experience.

Thanks again, Darren

Hi John,
