Alex Lloyd is a qualified marine surveyor and engineer offering services across the UK and Europe.
A comprehensive survey of the entire vessel including test/inspection of all on-board systems and a river/sea trial. A pre-purchase survey gives you the confidence to make a purchase decision.
Insurance companies often require a condition report when considering the insurance of older vessels.
The survey process is similar to a pre-purchase survey, but is usually for the existing owner. A condition survey is often used for planning a maintenance schedule.
When a vessel has suffered loss or damage, this survey identifies the extent of the damage. The report is often used to help boatyards quote for repairs.
Engines and outdrives are often the most expensive part of your boat, especially when it comes to maintenance and repair. Alex is able to carry out inspections on a wide variety of mechanical installations.
This is a limited inspection to gain an approximate market value. A valuation is not a survey.
Alex is able to guide, give expert advice, inspect boatyard repairs, accident damage and mechanical/electrical refits.
Alex has been involved within the marine industry as a marine engineer for the last 22 years. He is a trained MerCruiser technician, Mastervolt installer and Webasto heating service/installation engineer.
Alex previously owned a boat brokerage and marine engineering company before becoming a qualified and fully insured marine surveyor.
Having a marine engineering background, it allows him to confidently inspect a variety of vessels and all of the vessel systems including engines and outdrives.
Alex is a registered surveyor at The International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS) and is indemnified by full professional indemnity insurance.
