International Institute of Marine Surveying

About Us

Our Commitment
We are committed as a company to provide the best service for our clients.  Our reports are accurate, informative, unbiased and useful.  We are totally independent and our duty is to the client and do not compromise any wording of reports to get repeat referrals from brokers.  Indeed much of our work is word of mouth, our reputation and professionalism is key to our business.

We pride ourselves on aftercare service,  from giving friendly advice over the phone on a small repair/upgrade to a small pocket cruiser, to managing specialist professional companies on refits of large 50 ft plus yachts.

Our Experience
We are able to draw from a large body of practical knowledge gained over the last 20 years.  RP Marine Surveys was founded in 2007 and we have been going from strength to strength ever since.  We have good experience working with shipwrights, engineers, riggers, painters, GRP repair specialists.  We can draw from a network of experts in specific marine fields on more obscure defects encountered, indeed these are daily immersions whilst in the yards.

We are able to supervise refits, oversee osmosis treatments, advise on specific engineers and fabricators.

Our Qualifications
We are Full Members of the International Institute of Marine Surveyors. Our principal surveyor and director of the company is Roger Pinder who holds a Bachelor of Science Honours degree and a specific Internationally recognised Diploma in Surveying Small Craft.

We hold full Marine Surveying Professional Indemnity Insurance and survey craft upto £750,000 in value.

Our Passion
We, like our clients, are passionate about cruising.  Roger has previously  owned a 40' 1973 Trintella IV ketch motor sailor which he has sailed extensively with his family on the Atlantic Coasts and in the Med as far as Turkey.

With such experience comes an acute responsibly for each boat that is inspected.  As much fun as it is out there we know things can go wrong at sea - we want to minimise the risk to our clients as well as helping them make correct financial decisions for what is to most the second most expensive purchase of their lives.
