Ship pre-purchase inspection is one of the most exhaustive type of inspections. The scope is the full inspection of the ship, supplemented by special areas of concern such as fore peak and aft peak tanks or any client’s needs.

We can attend any type of ship, tanker, bulk-carrier, container-ships, ferry, ro-ro, car-carriers, livestock vessels, etc., to carry out pre-purchase inspection in order to assess the condition of the ship prior to be purchased.
