Yacht Surveys, Consultancy & Valuations

If you're looking for an experienced, professional Yacht Surveyor in the South East or Kent, you've come to the right place!

Welcome to Foster Marine Surveys - your yacht surveyor in the South East

Foster Marine Surveys is a yacht surveying consultancy based in Kent. Established 25 years ago, I have a reputation for thorough, professional and competitively priced surveys. I understand that time is of the essence for buyers and I can sometimes accommodate marine surveys at short notice. It gives me great job satisfaction that customers return to me over the years and continue to recommend my services.

Foster Marine Surveys provides yacht surveys in the South East UK and Kent. As you'd expect from a professional Boat Surveyor, I survey all marine constructions - GRP/FRP, Steel and Timber. I specialise in pre-purchase and insurance surveys on all types of leisure vessels - measuring up to 120 feet - including:

  • Sailing yachts & leisure craft
  • Powerboats
  • Displacement boats
  • Day boats
  • Narrowboats, Dutch barges and canal boats
  • Live-aboard vessels

Be assured that I always work in your interest. Benefit from a wealth of experience gained over a lifetime of being involved with all types of boats personally and professionally. I am a fully registered and insured Yacht Surveyor and I engage in regular CPD to update my skills and industry knowledge.

"Thank you for your excellent report and help with the purchase process for us. We want to thank you for being so thorough, speedy and open to help with any questions we could have had.."

DU and SP, London

I am based in Kent and much of my work is in the region - Thanet, Medway, Maidstone, Ramsgate, Sandwich, Dover and Folkestone - but do not hesitate to contact me should you need a marine survey outside of these areas - I am always happy to give you a quotation to include reasonable travel costs.

I am frequently instructed by clients looking for a yacht surveyor for whom long distance travel is not always feasible. You can rely on Foster Marine Surveys to undertake a marine survey on your behalf. I regularly travel on behalf of clients throughout the South East to include the Medway, London, Greenwich and, further afield, I have helped clients in the West Country, Norfolk and South-West.

Finally, I believe in traditional business values and good customer service and provide my clients with a professional, prompt and quality report. Typically, a detailed Survey Report is delivered by email within 4 days with a printed and bound copy following by post.
