"I’m very happy with the thorough professional and detailed survey Bernard did for me when inspecting a 70ft motor yacht I purchased in Spain."

Mr W Alisat, M/Y Seawolf

"We used Bernard to complete a pre-purchase survey on a 50ft sailing yacht. We found him to be very thorough and also flexible and supportive especially when we had to change to a larger lift out crane in a different location."

Mr R Stone, S/Y Parkside

"When I approached Bernard for survey, he responded promptly with details of price and full details of what the survey included. He was flexible on timing and came a day early to do the sea trial to take advantage of a weather window."

Mr I Barlow, M/Y Los Chicos

"Many thanks for a very thorough and easy to understand survey of our boat."

Mr B Dibben, S/Y Songbird

"I want to thank you for your input. Your report enabled me to make the right decision and also gave me some bargaining power in the purchase of the boat. "

Mrs F Woodruffe, M/Y Hoky

"Thank you Bernard for a very thorough report."

Mr S Relph, S/Y Aigua

"Your calm, logical approach to problems allowed me to concentrate on other issues."

Capt. Phil Lougher, M/Y Back Soon

"Bernie's communications with me, whether by phone, email, written or in person, were clear and concise supported by excellent, relevant photographs. He has the ability to explain complex details and functions in words that the man in the street can understand."

Mr A. Solomon, owner M/Y Shoshanna.

"You have the ability to make everyone feel safe. With you, we know we are in good hands."

Diane Haycock, Vitesse Yachts

"I found Bernie to be reliable, thorough, knowledgeable and above all professional."
