Maple Marine are independent yacht surveyors covering both inland waterways and coastal surveys worldwide.
We have a reputation for performing thorough surveys. We spend as long as is needed and don’t skimp on the time we spend looking at the boat.
We report in a prompt manner, often finishing and delivering the report the as quickly as practicable. We know that prompt receipt of the report is important to you so you can complete the purchase, be able to use your boat commercially, or have your boat repaired at the earliest opportunity.
Before we send you the report we will aim to call you to go through our findings in order to give you a good understanding of the issues and recommendations before you get the report to read. In this way you can ask for clarification and gain a full understanding of what is behind the recommendations.
Our aim is to provide you with a clear understanding of the condition of the vessel so you can make your decisions with confidence.
Our role is to inspect the boat in an objective, fair and independent way, factually reporting on the condition of the boat.
We highlight both the good things as well as the defects, giving a rounded assessment of the boat. We do not just present a list of defects.
Our surveyor is an accredited member of the Yacht Designers and Surveyors Association (YDSA), a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA), and a Fellow of the International Institute of Marine Surveyors (IIMS). Maple Marine is a member of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) and the British Marine Federation (BMF). He is currently the chairman of the YDSA.

“I really am very impressed with the quality, thoroughness, depth and professionalism of the survey you carried out on the boat last week.
There probably isn’t that much to do with boats with which we can ever feel that we have achieved great value but I truly feel in the case of your survey that on this occasion you have provided just that.”
