Welcome

When investing in a yacht or small craft, it is wise to protect yourself and have the vessel you're interested in surveyed by a professional. I am a SAMS® Accredited Marine Surveyor and owner of 41 North Marine located in Southern RI at Ram Point Marina in Wakefield. With 40-plus years of recreational boating experience and over 25 years of commercial maritime experience, including yacht captain/engineer, tow boat captain/salvage diver, technician, and delivery captain, I am more than familiar with boats and assessing/handling the issues that plague them. I have also achieved my ABYC Master Marine Technician Certification and have extensive experience working as a marine technician on all types of vessels. I have surveyed a vast array of power and sailboats from 13 feet to 107 feet, but no matter what type of boat or the size, when it comes to surveying, above all else, safety is of the utmost importance. That's not to say that issues that could potentially devalue or compromise the integrity of a vessel are not a priority; they are, but issues that cause a vessel to be unsafe must be brought to light more than anything else and are not as easy to detect and evaluate as one might think. The function of the marine surveyor is to reveal any issues that could potentially detract from the value and integrity of the vessel but, most importantly, any issues that would cause the vessel to be unsafe.
