Do you do surveys?

Yes, Alan Broomfield is based at the dock and undertakes surveys on Sunday – the fee is £225 + VAT for the docking plus £12 per foot for a full  survey – so if you have a 40′ boat the fee would be £480 for the survey.

If you just want a hull survey it’s a flat rate of £350

If you want to book an alternative surveyor while you’re in the dock for other work that is also fine.
