Simplified pre-insurance visit report
Conditions and general course of the expertise
- The present expertise cannot be assimilated to a complete pre-purchase expertise. There is no systematic examination of the lively works, the rigging and the sails (for sailing boats). The engine(s) are checked by a simple starting test. Instruments and equipment are simply listed but not systematically tested.
- Duration: 2 to 3 hours
The expertise of your vessel is a privileged moment to make a really complete control of the hull and equipment. It can therefore be useful to choose a complete “pre-purchase” type of expertise. (Polyester sailboat expertise)
