Default Surveyor on LI

I got a quote today of $2200 for 2018 34 Monterey. Seems super pricey! Does anyone have a recommendation?

A boat is not a small investment and you should certainly have a thorough surveyor look at it before your purchase. Saving money on a survey can easily be peanuts compared to necessary repairs that are overlooked by an inexperienced surveyor. I highly recommend Steve Maddock. Nobody is more thorough.

Price seems high for that boat. Here's a list from a few weeks ago:

Is it just a hull survey? If so yes it’s expensive, if it’s mechanical and engines as well, it’s not a crazy price.

McGoldrick did my Pursuit, he was very thorough

All surveyors will do some basics on the engines, but get a mechanic to look at the engines. For that size boat, if you have 2 surveys done $2200 sounds about right. For a basic hull survey that seems very expensive.
