Surveyors Fees

bulletSurveyor fees are paid for by the boat buyer and the report remains the exclusive property of the boat buyer. We will not share the final typed report with anyone without the buyers explicate consent. Our fees are fixed and as follows:

 

bulletOur survey fee is based on the LOA (Length Over All ) of the vessel. 

 

bullet Our fee is $16.00 per foot for boats up to 30 feet. Multiply $16 x Vessel LOA and that will equal the total cost of our survey in the Metro NY area.  ( $368 for all boats under 23 feet).  This rate applies to Condition and Valuation Surveys, Finance Surveys, Purchase Surveys and Insurance Surveys.  These are all the same survey, required by banks, insurance companies and finance companies and are all the same price.  Appraisal surveys may be somewhat less expensive but can not be used for insurance or finance purposes.
bullet Our fee is $17.00 per foot for boats up to 31 to 40 feet. This rate applies to Condition and Valuation Surveys, Finance Surveys, Purchase Surveys and Insurance Surveys.  These are all the same survey, required by banks, insurance companies and finance companies and are all the same price.  Appraisal surveys may be somewhat less expensive but can not be used for insurance or finance purposes.
bullet Our fee is $19.00 per foot for boats over 41 to 50 feet. Multiply $19 x Vessel LOA and that will equal the total cost of our survey in the Metro NY area.   This rate applies to Condition and Valuation Surveys, Finance Surveys, Purchase Surveys and Insurance Surveys.  These are all the same survey, required by banks, insurance companies and finance companies and are all the same price.  Appraisal surveys may be somewhat less expensive but can not be used for insurance or finance purposes.
bullet Our fee is $22.00 per foot for boats up to 51 to 60 feet. This rate applies to Condition and Valuation Surveys, Finance Surveys, Purchase Surveys and Insurance Surveys.  These are all the same survey, required by banks, insurance companies and finance companies and are all the same price.  Appraisal surveys may be somewhat less expensive but can not be used for insurance or finance purposes.

 

bulletA second trip is bill at a flat rate of $150.00. Second trips are scheduled should we not be able to complete the entire survey through no fault of our own. For example, if a sea trial was scheduled and could not be performed we charge only the $100 fee to return another day and perform the sea trial.  Often in late winter or early spring a boat can not be launched for a sea trial and two visits may be required.  One out of water and another in water after the vessel is commissioned.

 

bulletCompression tests are $20 per each engine Cylinder.
 

 

bulletLaboratory analysis of engine oil or transmission lubricant is billed at a flat rate of $75.00 per each engine or each transmission analysis.

 

bulletOur hourly rate is $110.00 per hour.  Hourly rates apply for specialized services, such as consultations.   Surveys are generally not billed at an hourly rate but at a fixed rate as indicated above.  

 

bulletCourt time time, or the time spent in court is billed at a higher rate than our hourly rate.

Try to book your survey two weeks in advance. However our schedule is very fluid and we may be able to accommodate you even on short notice. Please call 631 589 6154 or email us at neboaters@aol.com to schedule an appointment.
