Rocky Pointe Marina – Resources
Whether buying or selling a boat, it is always a good idea to have a professional surveyor inspect your boat before you purchase. Most likely your insurance company is going to require that a survey be done. Some surveys can be done just in the water, but most require an out of the water survey to inspect the condition of the hull, thru hulls, shafts, and propellers. We provide the facility for the boat to be hauled out of the water for inspection. You must select your own surveyor. Below are some of the surveyors we are most accustomed to working with and all members of SAMS (Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors) and ABYC(American Boat and Yacht Council). The surveyors typically charge $15 per foot. Our boatyard charges $7.50 per ft for survey haul out. We waive our charges if the boat stays in the yard for work and bottom paint.
