To help eliminate most of those teething problems that are always present when buying a new boat, it is a good idea to have a surveyor carry out a Pre Delivery Inspection. This would be carried out after the boat has been commissioned by the builder/dealer and when they consider that it is ready for handover.
The vessel will be given a thorough check for the quality of the boats build and to ensure that the operating systems work as they should.
It would also ensure that the boat conforms to the Recreational Craft Directive, the standard to which all boats in the EU have to be built. This includes ensuring you have ready access to all the serviceable items of equipment, right down to the positioning of the seacocks etc.
Following the inspection a list of defects would be produced and presented to the purchaser, so that they may take them up with their supplier.
