Recommendation for a surveyor in St Martin

I have to have my every 4 year out of the water survey for insurance purposes by July. Boat lives at Anse Marcel, St Martin FWI.
Can anyone recommend a surveyor in St Martin?
I have owned the boat for 19 years and know it like the back of my hand but the insurance value has to be substantiated.

Re: Recommendation for a surveyor in St Martin

Did not retain his services, since I needed a survey in Guadeloupe. He was recommended to me by Bureau Veritas in the US. I did meet him in St.Martin as he was doing multiple surveys for Moorings while I was visiting a Lagoon410 there just 2 weeks ago, and the Moorings representative commented he was a good surveyor.
His coordinates:

David Duong
SAMS Surveyor Associate
Bureau Veritas Surveyor
St Martin Marine Surveyors
Cell #1 (french) +590 690 885 688
Cell #2 (dutch) +1 721 588 3936

You can always mention my name as we exchanged multiple emails

Re: Recommendation for a surveyor in St Martin

David Duong did my survey. It was good for what I paid. There where extenuating circumstances which made the survey kind of moot. So, I'd recommend him. He used to be the base manager for Horizon Yacht Charter but I noticed someone has replaced him. He may have left the island.

He is on the island and the best surveyor and yacht manager you could wish for. He took care of ours for over a year. Trustworthy
