Surveyor in Queensland

I am about to purchase a catamaran in Queensland and looking for recommendations for a surveyor. Any help will be appreciated!

Re: Surveyor in Queensland

Thanks for that. Is there anything about him specifically that prompts your recommendation?

Yes Geoff Cruse. Professional, does a good report with photos and commentary, knows his multi hull stuff, been doing this a long time. Have used him twice. You should attend the inspection with him and you will learn a lot.

Re: Surveyor in Queensland

I was going to say Geoff Cruse as well. He has been involved in building, co-designing and racing multis for about 45 years and few people would know more about multis in Australia than him.

Geoff is in Brisbane but travels - almost anywhere here or OS.

I vote for him as well, he is the only guy I have used when it has been my money on the line

Re: Surveyor in Queensland

Glad to see Cruisey still doing his thing.
Pretty much a living legend in the multihull world.
Need to catch up and have some "black coffee" with him again, its been to long.

Re: Surveyor in Queensland

Geoff also did the survey on our boat when we bought her, very happy with his work. He also did an insurance survey for us last year.

Re: Surveyor in Queensland

In Brisbane. Pretty forgetful of me to not mention the city. I am aware there are others. The first place I sailed into was Surfer's Paradise, expecting a few tents, beach bonfires and surfboards stuck in the sand, plus maybe Frankie and Annette.

So thanks for all the help. It looks like Cruze 3, all other surveyors 0.
