What is

a technical assessment?

In a second-hand market as active as that of boats, on certain occasions, the technical assessment is essential to support the decision to purchase or grant insurance.

Knowing the general condition of a vessel minimizes the risks of an operation.

Likewise, to market boats we have the Confidence Seal. If a seller, broker, workshop or other agent wants to prove to the market and the authorities the suitability of their product, they will need a third-party certification, which ensures the independence of the certification.

This service is essentially, but not exclusively, aimed at:

  • INSURERS, who wish to assess the risk before insuring.
  • BUYERS, who wish to assess the risk of their investment.
  • NAUTICAL AND SELLERS IN GENERAL, who wish to add value to their product.
