Boat Safe Surveys Ltd offers competitively priced examinations starting at just £100. As all boats are different, please contact us for a quotation. Don't forget - the price quoted will be fully inclusive of all certification & travel costs etc.
We will need to know some relevant details to provide a quotation. These are:
Is the boat used for Hire or Reward?
Is the boat residential?
Is there a gas system on the boat? (please see the note* below)
Does the boat have a 230v mains electricity system?
How many engines does the boat have and are they inboard or outboard?
The length of the boat?
Where is the boat moored?
Is there easy access to the boat?
We accept cash or cheque payment on the day of the initial examination. Sorry, but we are not able to accept debit or credit cards. By prior arrangement we can accept BACS (bank transfer) payments.
Prices quoted are inclusive of all travel. They include the issuing of all paperwork required: Examination Report, Appliance Record & the online Boat Safety Scheme Certificate (this will be produced onsite subject to GSM internet access in your location). Supplementary travel charges may apply for jobs outside the company’s normal area of operations. These charges will be clearly stated on the quotation either by phone or email.
Should a further visit be required within 3 months of the original examination, our examiner will re-visit your boat for a set fee of £45 to check the items that failed the first inspection & to issue the paperwork / certificate etc. If more than 3 months has passed since the first examination we are required under BSS conditions of registration to perform a full re-examination of the vessel and the full fee will be charged again.
* Where a gas system is present on the boat, the fee quoted is inclusive of the gas tightness test as required for the BSS examination. Should further diagnostic testing be required to find leaks and problems associated with the gas system, this will be charged at £45 per hour + parts and is subject to a separate contract outside the BSS examination as described elsewhere on this website.
