With an academic background in naval architecture, specialising in small craft design and construction techniques coupled with nigh on a decade delivering yachts, power and sail, mono and multihulls, throughout Europe, the North Atlantic and the Pacific covering over 145,000nm. I fully understand the rigours, which a yacht must be able to endure during its life.

In my capacity as a delivery skipper I have had to assess the seaworthiness of each and every vessel with respect to the intended voyage.

From this background it was a natural progression to move into surveying full time, offering the knowledge I have gained over the years to the sailing community at large.

Not content to rest on my laurels I have rounded my knowledge by attaining a Diploma in Small Craft Surveying through the IIMS, an organisation of which I remain a member.


I offer a comprehensive service with in depth reports detailing all issues that arise from the survey. These reports can be presented in a technical or non-technical format, as per the clients’ wishes. All reports are initially transmitted via email, with a hard copy following by post, as required

As a surveyor who is registered member (AffilIIMS) of the IIMS, I follow and adhere to their guidleines on professional conduct 

All reports are the sole property of the client and are not redistributed to third parties without the client’s authority.
