looking for a surveyor in Spain / France

Anyone care to recommend an accredited surveyor to do a full pre sale and insurance survey? The 47' sailing yacht is in a Marina on the Costa Brava. Many thanks!

Re: looking for a surveyor in Spain / France

I am also looking for a recommendation for surveyor in the French Med area for a very close friend who is looking to purchase a pre-owned Lagoon. Did you ever find someone? and how did it work out?

I am surprised by the number of threads on this forum asking for surveyor recommendations with either no responses or no real recommendations????

I would suggest you find someone through here..
https://www.ukyachtsurveyors.com/
Yes it will cost a return flight plus 1 nights hotel bill but... its in English and he/she will be a member of an association accredited to insurance companies standards..
For the Cat, get a specialist in Cats..

David Dabney - nice, competent, prompt, well credentialed. He works out of Barcelona and Copenhagen.

His service for me was very good and quite pleasant.

Re: looking for a surveyor in Spain / France

Hello everyone,
This topic is a bit older, but I wanted to introduce myself:
I have been a yacht surveyoyr in Spain since 2008.
My base is Alicante, Costa Blanca, but I also work in the rest of Spain including the Balearic and Canary Islands, Portugal, Italy and the South of France.
I speak fluent Spanish and French and can speak some Portuguese, which is always useful when carrying out the survey on site.
If you are interested, here is the form for a quote:

Greetings,
Frank

You do realise the boat will be liable for VAT when you bring it into the EU.. also make sure it has a CE Certificate.

Use the 'Find Surveyor' page of the International Institute of Marine Surveyors (IIMS). It also comes as an app.

Re: looking for a surveyor in Spain / France

Hello boatman61, thank you for your advice .
we already informed from the Spanish authorities that said us..when buying the second hand boats from no EU just need to pay the transmission tax 8% , but after received your message we decided to go again to talk with gestoria to understand well this process. We are really appreciated for this community because now we are informed that exist app or groups for orcas ..and we are a bit preoccupied to navigate from Norway to Spain . Greetings

Re: looking for a surveyor in Spain / France

Hi Jessy,
In my opinion the best way to find a local trustable surveyor would be to contact an official Norwegian sailing association.
