We pride ourselves on our competitive pricing structure and provide a detailed quotation within the same working day, often within the hour…

From small sail boats to super yachts. Our flexible approach and skilled support team are able to co-ordinate even the largest projects; establishing Interface Marine as a genuine asset to our clients and referring brokers. On large yachts the survey is assisted by our interior consultants, expediting the whole survey schedule or indeed to take inventory where required. Our office can organise all elements; haul outs, engine techs, divers, hull thickness gauging and even crew for sea trials if required.  Clients receive a comprehensive & pragmatic report within 48hrs of survey completion and an interim report can be provided daily.

In the event that a major defect is discovered, immediate client contact is made. A certificate of valuation based on the current market conditions can also be provided.
