Who Are We?

Founded in 2015, we are the industry leaders in providing detailed Surveys and Mechanical Inspections. Coming from an engineering background, our reports are in a category of their own. Our inspections go far beyond a traditional hull survey – we combine both a mechanical and structural survey into one comprehensive report.

Specialising in inspections only, we get the opportunity to inspect hundreds of boats each year, ensuring that you are working with the most experienced and professional team in Australia.

We hold current memberships with both Boating Industry Australia and Australiasin Institute of Marine Surveyors.
