Surveyor Needed In Tanzania

Hi everyone, can anybody recommend a surveyor in Tanzania, Dar Es salaam to be exact ?

Buying a Lagoon 450F and would like to get it surveyed around the 1st or 2nd week of March.

Regards

Rikus

Looks like the nearest member of the Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors is about 190 miles away.

Unfortunately looks like their specialty is

Cargo, Hull & Machinery, and Tug & Barge

Re: Surveyor Needed In Tanzania

Question for all members: has anyone thought about virtual surveys?

Basically, such a survey would entail careful videos of the boat inside and out in real time. The surveyor could then direct the prospective owner to use simple tools (moisture meter? multi-testers?) to inspect certain areas of the boat and things to look/listen for during a sea trial.

This service may already be out there and, if so, could be useful for prospective buyers in remote areas.

Just an idea

Cheers
