The Yacht Surveyor

i told you

The Surveyor is a yacht expert whose role is to assist the customer in technical and economic evaluation of a yacht, some of her parts or particular damage suffered.

The Surveyor, once appointed, works for his client solely, and he is committed to report his activity to him only.
The Surveyor role is super partes; although working for his client, his aim is to make known the truth about his assignment. For this reason, it makes no difference if the expert is chosen by a vessel prospective buyer, its owner, an underwriter: the result of the expertise will always be the same.
