I'm looking at a similar question myself. Boracay is amateur built steel
, and to renew my insurance I need an out of water
survey, an out of water inspection
or a valuation, depending on the company.
It should be possible to get a survey done on a ferro
boat. There is a construction standard, and at least a few commercial
ferro boats were built and passed survey.
I'm not close to getting it done, and steel
is easier than ferro, but why not ask a few insurance companies if they will take on ferro (even for third party) if you can get a survey. In particular I'd be interested to hear what Suncorp had to say.
Also ask if they have a list of acceptable surveyors.
Then approach a few surveyors and ask if they will survey ferro. If they say no I'd be very interested to hear their reasoning.
