Surveyor in Sausalito or San Francisco CA?

Getting closer to buying my US boat.

Rather than have the broker recommend a Surveyor to do an inspection for me I was hoping someone here might recommend one for me?

Like to keep things objective.

I hope to be heading over in July.

Thanks guys

Simon

Try Jack MacKinnon, he's been surveying for a long time and I'm sure he will do a good job for you, he might even know the boat you're looking at or may have surveyed it previously. Good luck.

I use Tom List for engine surveys. He's on the above list.

I took a recommendation and had Lorne Gould do a survey, very thorough and took the time to answer my (endless) follow up questions.

510.465.2527
351 Embarcadero
Oakland, CA 94606


Peter Minkwitz, surveyor.


To contact Worldwide Marine Surveys, Inc. call 510.465.2527.

Peter gave me an excellent survey once. Very honest, I didn't buy the boat. And this is from a guy who thinks most surveyors are useless.

I used Steve Wedlock.

I can recommend him without reservation to anyone buying a boat in Northern California.
