Welcome to Foster Marine Surveys
Foster Marine Surveys is an independent yacht surveying service based in Kent, established over 15 years ago. I take pride in having built a reputation for thorough, honest and promptly delivered boat surveys. I understand that time is of the essence for buyers and can often accommodate purchase surveys at short notice. Many customers have returned to me over the years and recommend my services.
Foster Marine Surveys offers professional boat surveys, valuations, consultancy and yacht maintenance throughout Kent and south England, as well as the UK generally. As a yacht surveyor, I specialise in pre-purchase and insurance surveys on a wide range of (non-commercial) boats which measure up to 120 feet, including:
Be assured that I always work in your interest and am a highly experienced and registered surveyor with full insurance. As you would expect, as a professional yacht surveyor, I survey all marine constructions: GRP/FRP, Steel, Timber and Ferro Cement.
My business is based in Kent and the majority of my work has been within the county, including Chatham, Gillingham, The Medway, Ramsgate, Sandwich, Dover and Folkestone, but do not hesitate to contact me should you need a yacht survey outside of these areas - I am always happy to give you a quotation to include reasonable travel costs.
I am frequently instructed by prospective buyers looking for a yacht survey in South England for whom long distance travel is not always feasible. You can rely on Foster Marine Surveys to undertake a boat survey on your behalf where necessary. I also assist customers who wish to buy or sell UK-registered boats which are moored in Europe.
I believe in customer service and providing a prompt, efficient and quality service. Typically, a detailed Survey Report is delivered by email within 4 days. A printed and bound copy is sent in the post to keep for reference.
Are you new to boating?
In addition to the Survey itself, much of my work involves advising those that are new to boating and I am happy to advise you how to proceed through the boat purchase process. I effectively grew up on and around boats so have a lifetime of experience of boats, to include the buying and selling process. With this is mind, I include practical advice to encourage safe and enjoyable boating.
But don't just take my word for it - please see what recent customers say about the service provided by Foster Marine Surveys (Testimonials.)
