We provide detailed Marine Surveys for Yachts, Small Craft and Commercial Boats 26' - 130' throughout Southern California. We are Accredited Marine Surveyors and ABYC Certified for Marine Electrical & Marine Systems. 
All vessels surveyed for safety & seaworthiness per USCG, NFPA & ABYC inspection standards for safeguarding and with no unwarranted survey recommendations. 
Survey Rates up to 50 ft.
Pre Purchase Survey  $19.ft - $26. ft
Insurance Survey        $15.ft - $20. ft
Machinery - Engine Survey $300.00 - $500.00 per component.  ( Diesel and Gas all inclusive with a few exceptions )
Each survey requires consideration and tailoring to fit each vessel, just too many variables and circumstances to assume otherwise. Boats do get large quickly, a boat twice the length could have up to four times the surface area and eight times the volume.

Clay looked over a boat for me. I loved the wonderful condition of this old boat. Clay was not impressed. Among the defects he discovered were dry rot, engine nearly rust. Clay recommended a mechanic to check for water intrusion and it was found. I am so grateful. I am looking for a first boat and single in Santa Monica

So impressed with the knowledge, experience, & professionalism. Not only did we gain complete peace of mind in our decision to purchase a boat, but we learned a lot as well. I would highly recommend Mr. Lindsey to anyone looking to make a purchase or assess damages on any type of vessel.

I was interested in a 40 foot Egg Harbor. Clay came the day after I called him to look over the boat. We arranged a survey and I was really impressed with his competence and huge depth of knowledge. I recommend Clay as the best there is in marine survey
