Why choose and AIMS Surveyor?

Getting out on the water is a favourite Aussie past-time and we want to help you make sure that the boat you purchase is suitable for you and what you want it to do.

Purchasing a boat is a big investment and things can and do go wrong so you want the best advice possible.

Engaging a Certified Commercial Marine Surveyor™ to help you buy a boat makes a lot of sense. A quality condition survey is the second best investment that you will make as part of the buying process. Getting it right the first time may just save your life.

The recreational boating industry in Australia is largely unregulated.

Unlike the case of other professions that are licenced like builders, mechanics or plumbers there are no Government controls that regulate the minimum qualifications or experience required by a marine surveyors in the recreational boating sector.

The Australasian Institute of Marine Surveyors encourages boat owners to only engage a Certified Commercial Marine Surveyor™ who is a member of a professional body or specialist surveying membership organisation that you can talk to.

We care passionately about getting you out on the water because we love it too – but more than that we care about your safety and that means we care about your boat.

To become a full member of the AIMS, surveyors must provide evidence of their qualifications and experience that support the areas of specialisation they advertise.

AIMS Surveyors also commit and adhere to the AIMS Code of Professional Practice.
