You can figure on $12-$18 per foot for a hull survey, and basic engine check. A hull survey with full engine survey usually runs $20-$25 per foot.
For $20-$25 per foot it better take two full days to do it. That's piracy. Does that come with a written guarantee?
That's for a full hull survey, in and out of the water, a compression check of the motor(s), engine oil analysis, and hooking a computer up to the engines and getting a computer reading on the actual condition and hours of the motors.
Two full days - you bet. At least one full day for the survey, and at least a day for the report. Not all surveyors charge this, or are able to. This is for a surveyor that is also an engine surveyor. Alot of surveyors just compression check the motors without the oil analysis or computer hookup.
