Marine Surveyor YDSA

Types of Survey

Valuation Survey Insurance Survey Boat Safety Examination
New Build Consultation and Litigation Part Survey

Barrie Morse has gained specialist knowledge within the Inland waterways and will undertake the following types of surveys on steel, iron, glass reinforced plastic (grp) and timber vessels.


This type of survey is sometimes required by insurance or finance companies and does not normally require docking or a structural inspection and therefore inherently restrictive.

I will inspect the craft and form an opinion on open market value.


Inspections specifically requested by insurance companies which may involve damage surveys and valuation surveys.


This is not a survey but an examination pertaining to standards within the 'Boat Safety Scheme'.

I am authorised by British Waterways and the Environmental Agency for certification.

New Build Construction

This type of survey will include an oversight concerning the construction of new or repaired craft.

Consultation and Litigation

A professional survey that can involve advice on purchase, planning and design.

I can also offer a professional service including consultation, expert witness and arbitration.

'Part Surveys'
Occasionally undertaken which would involve an inspection to specific parts of the vessel i.e. machinery.
