|The cost of a marine survey has many variables in arriving at a fair price, including but not limited to the size and type of vessel, the materials used in its construction, the type of work the surveyor is required to complete, and the amount of traveling involved to get to the job.|
The age and condition of the vessel can also play a part... it takes much longer to survey and write the report for a 15 year old boat that has been badly neglected than It does for a three your old vessel in Bristol condition. Some surveys may require an hourly rate rather than a flat fee or price per foot.
We should add here that in almost every case the marine survey is very much the wrong place to try to save a couple of hundred bucks. A boat is a very serious investment, both in money and life and limb. Get the best man for the job and pay him what he is worth.
