Acceptance Surveys

Acceptance Surveys for new boats.

For many reasons, possibly due to time, money and staff constraints, not all new boats are prepared as well as the ideal.  Also the optional extra equipment that is fitted in some cases is not necessarily totally correct for the type of yacht or anticipated usage. this could lead to extra unforeseen costs. Olsen Marine carry out Acceptance Surveys on new boats- Yachts or Powerboats- on owners behalf to ensure a smooth and seamless transaction, which will make the whole process more enjoyable- this is what buying a boat is meant to be!
